 Webinar: What to Expect While Expecting- For Female Producers & Farmworkers in Ag

Summary: Pregnancy and fertility are often not considered when women assume farm tasks. Pesticide and other chemical exposures, zoonotic diseases and heavy lifting particularly during childbearing years, present challenges. 

Objectives- At the end of the presentation, participants will be able to: 

  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.
