Hello! My name is Chela Vázquez. I recently joined UMASH as project coordinator for the Promoting Safety and Health for Immigrant Dairy Workers program.
A Center of Excellence Dedicated to
Agricultural Health and Safety in the Upper Midwest.
Great Content shared often! If you are a farmer, this is the place to learn about how to keep yourself and your family safe!
Sharing UMASH's and other partner resources with our Gear Up for Ag Health and Safety students throughout the year makes our work much easier!
They have been important resources to be sure our "learners" know how to stay safe! Honestly, I haven't been able to find better resources than yours!
Being a farm kid and being raised around this stuff all our lives, we don't realize all the unsafe things we are around so seeing that made me realize that little everyday things I'm doing or around are not always as safe as I think they are.
Ag Educator Resources
Teaching agriculture safety and health is important for the next generation of farmers and agriculture professions.
UMASH has compiled a variety of resources and tools that can be used to integrate health and safety topics into the classroom in a teacher friendly format.
