AgSafe: Agricultural Safety Training Materials

AgSafe is a non-profit coalition of groups and organizations dedicated to the reduction of injuries, illness, and fatalities in California agriculture. These safety training materials were developed in cooperation with the Safety Center, Inc. and the Farm Employers Labor Service. The materials are being disseminated in the public domain for the use of and distribution by any group or organization involved in agricultural work. There are a total of twelve safety modules consisting of an English script and a Spanish script.

Additional information about the AgSafe project is available, as well as information about the preparation and distribution of the safety modules and suggestions for their use.
