Why attend a Workshop on Child Ag Injury Prevention?

 Join us as we look at the topics and sessions included in the Child Agricultural Injury Prevention Workshop, which will be held on September 17-18, 2019 in Hershey PA.

Presenters: Marsha Salswedel, EdD, Agricultural Youth Safety Specialist, National Children's Center for Rural and Agricultural Safety and Health
Knesha Rose-Davison, MPH, Communications Director, AgriSafe Network

We will explore how often these injuries (and fatalities) occur, and why it’s important that we work together to prevent them from occurring. We will also preview how participants develop an injury prevention program during the workshop, including accessing funds to support your efforts. Information will also be shared on scholarship opportunities to help offset the costs of the workshop.

 The AgriSafe “Invest In Your Health” session is also being offered as part of this workshop, at no additional charge. Participants will receive all the materials needed to run their own CAIP program. Three topics (zoonotic diseases, hazard mapping and heat/sun safety) are introduced at the workshop, and access to information and resources is provided for two more.  

This workshop is ideal for farm organizations, insurance professionals, agribusiness, bankers and lenders, healthcare providers, Extension, FFA Advisors, public health officials, media and more. Scholarship support is available.
