Abstract
Workers in agriculture are exposed to many outdoor health hazards that depend on their type of work, geographic region, season, and duration of time they are outside. The Education and Information Division (EID) of NIOSH is developing educational materials for employers and workers about these health hazards in collaboration with scientists internal and external to NIOSH. The goal of these educational products is to provide materials for agricultural workers on hazards they may be exposed to while on the job. These products describe each physical, biological, or chemical hazard and provide steps for prevention and basic first aid recommendations. In addition, these products provide portable, accessible, and easy-touse information about individual worker hazards. Current and future NIOSH electronic and print products for workers in agriculture include Workplace Solutions, web topic pages, and NIOSH Fast Facts cards. Product topics currently in development include: tick-borne diseases, mosquito-borne diseases, poisonous plants, venomous snakes, venomous spiders, stinging insects, heat stress, cold stress, and sun exposure (ultraviolet radiation). NIOSH/EID is interested in partnering with other researchers to develop additional educational products about health hazards to workers in agriculture.
