Workshop in Agricultural Safety Resources- Keeping Children Safe

1.0 NAPNAP Contact Hour. This continuing education activity is offered at a reduced rate to NAPNAP Members. This continuing education activity rate is 10$ for NAPNAP Members. For non- members, this continuing education activity rate is 20$. More than 22 million people are employed in an agricultural-related field, which is one of our nation’s most dangerous industries and the only worksite where children can be present. Every day, 33 children are seriously injured and every three days, a child dies in agricultural-related incidents. The presenters will use case studies to provide a hands-on workshop enabling participants to explore the incidence and causes of child injuries/fatalities and provide access to free, scientifically based anticipatory guidance materials and agricultural safety resources.
