  • Producers and workers alike highlight a successful health and safety model for immigrant workers in dairy that incorporates an OSHA-approved, train-the-trainer curriculum and utilizes Promotores de salud, or Community Health Workers on the farm.

    The safety training curriculum described includes background sections on each topic, a step-by-step facilitator guide and educational handouts such as comic books to help reinforce safety messages after the training. The curriculum includes visuals appropriate for workers with limited formal education and low levels of literacy either in the form of power point slide presentations or flip charts. Available in English and Spanish.

    The curriculum was developed as part of the Seguridad en las Lecherias: Immigrant Dairy Worker Health and Safety project, a partnership between the Migrant Clinicians Network, the National Farm Medicine Center and the Upper Midwest Agriculture Safety and Health Center (UMASH).
