Agricultural Safety and Health: The Core Course to be held in June

Published on April 19, 2023

Agriculture ranks among the most hazardous industries. Farmers remain at very high risk for fatal and nonfatal injuries, and farming is one of the few industries in which family members (who often share the work and live on the premises) are also at risk for fatal and nonfatal injuries.

This year GPCAH offers a virtual course on June 1, 16, 23, and 30 with an in-person farm tour at Iowa State University on June 2. The tour is required for graduate student credit and is optional for all other participants. Continuing education credits will be available.
