1. Identify unique exposures/risks associated with farm tasks.

2. Identify at least four reproductive health and safety issues for women.

3. Locate three current evidenced based resources in the field of agricultural health

4. Develop Hazard Map of work exposures.

5. Select appropriate PPE for farm tasks to reduce or eliminate exposures and or risks.
