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

  1. What hand planting work involves
  2. The challenges associated with collecting exposure information within the agriculture, forestry, and fishing industry sector
  3. The importance of studying and preventing injuries and illnesses among reforestation workers.
