Description: "NC Cooperative Extension has partnered with the farming community to provide Farmworker Safety Trainings.

Do you employ any native Spanish speaking farm labor (or know anyone that does) and need them to be trained on pesticide safety, heat stress safety, or green tobacco sickness? Well, NC Cooperative Extension will be providing FREE farmworker safety trainings on May 30th at the Wilson Agriculture Center.

This training is a state recognized and will assist in fulfilling some the requirements from Worker Protection Standards and Good Agricultural Practices certifications. The training consists of a 90 minute interactive session that will cover 3 topics neccesary for compliance, which are pesticide safety, heat stress safety and green tobacco sickness, all in Spanish. At the conclusion of the training, the business where the workers will be working will receive a certificate of completion and a list of workers trained for record keeping."
