Safety in The Field: Addressing Workplace Sexual Harassment for Farm Workers 

Thirty-six percent of the 3.4 million producers counted in the census are women. Education will focus on all women including farmworker women and their employers on reporting violent incidents to authorities, making employees aware of their legal rights, safe work practices, medical referrals, treatment, and options including counseling if needed.

Intended Audience: This training is intended primarily for health and safety professionals including but not limited to owner/operators, safety officers or specialists, managers, supervisors, safety coordinators, health safety and environmental interns and any person or persons who serve as safety personnel in an agricultural setting. 

At the end of this webinar participants will be able to:
1. The scope and nature of workplace violence occurring in agriculture today.
2. Employers' responsibilities in addressing workplace violence and implementing preventive measures.
3. Effective strategies and interventions that can make the workplace safer and more responsive to employee-victims.
