The Ergonomics of Hand Planting Reforestation Work
April 9, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT
Reforestation work is vital to the health of America’s forests and the U.S. economy. Hand planting, a common reforestation practice, provides unique challenges to safety and health practitioners interested in reducing occupational injuries and illnesses. This webinar will share lessons learned from a team of investigators studying occupational exposures to physical risk factors among hand planters in the Southeastern United States.
At the end of this webinar, participants will have a better understanding of
- What hand planting work involves
- The challenges associated with collecting exposure information within the agriculture, forestry, and fishing industry sector
- The importance of studying and preventing injuries and illnesses among reforestation workers.
