Our new U.S. Agricultural Health and Safety Centers YouTube Channel has launched - November 5, 2013
Agricultural safety featured on new YouTube channel
"The channel is an inexpensive way to reach millions of people with safety and health information," said project administrator Allison DeVries, High Plains Intermountain Center for Agricultural Health and Safety (Colorado).
DeVries said that the Centers also hope to get valuable feedback on their videos through the YouTube comments. "Anyone can quickly establish an account and post a comment," DeVries said.
"NIOSH established the Centers to protect the safety and health of more than 5.5 million full- and part-time contract and seasonal workers in agriculture, forestry, and fishing, as well as farm family members," said Wickman. "Many Centers have created videos for this purpose, and we're trying to enhance dissemination to people who can benefit most from them."
Topics include: respiratory protection, livestock safety, tractor and machinery safety, child development, emergency response, grain safety, pesticide safety, heat illness prevention, ladder safety and hearing protection.
