Covington, LA — Helping farmers and ranchers navigate occupational risks and providing information on health and safety issues is the goal of the AgriSafe Health Hub, a new website.
Launched by the AgriSafe Network, an international nonprofit representing health and safety professionals, the website combines the organization’s learning management system, which includes fact sheets, webinars and safety information, with health topics such as COVID-19, heat-related illness, opioids and mental health.
“Finding trusted health information can be difficult, especially when you need information specifically for the occupational hazards associated with farming,” Sarah Dauterive, web technologies librarian at AgriSafe, said in a press release. “This new space serves as a hub for the people working in agriculture to find specific information to their needs, both from AgriSafe and our trusted partners.”
According to the release, which cites data from NIOSH, agriculture ranks among the most hazardous industries. Recent statistics show that about 100 agricultural workers suffer a lost-work-time injury each day.
McCraren Compliance assists employers in protecting their workers, starting with a comprehensive Work-site Analysis, Hazard Prevention, Controls, and Safety & Health Training.
