Personal Safety During Harvest
GHSC Harvest Safety Learning Series #2
When hazards cannot be eliminated and engineering controls won’t work, personal safety really is personal. When the last line or ONLY line of defense is a person’s actions or personal protective equipment (PPE) what should they know? This interactive presentation will demonstrate and discuss some of these situations including recent innovations in PPE, from head to toe, and describe how each innovation breaks down a barrier for the use and usability of PPE.
