The range of farm activities compound the problem of assuring a safe worksite for farm women who have their own inherent contraindications. Safety education for the agricultural population is often aimed at men in farming operations resulting in farm women being an underserved population.

Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • List a minimum of four factors related to women's health and safety in agriculture.
  • Discuss potential solutions that would address the unique safety and health challenges to women engaged in agriculture.
  • Locate a minimum of three recommended clinical and community health resources that address women's agricultural health and safety needs.
