Stand T.A.L.L. – Instructional materials to empower youth working in agriculture webinar
Agriculture is a highly dangerous profession, even for adults. Working with grain increases the hazards and requires that workers are well trained and highly alert to these dangers. The “Stand T.A.L.L.” instructional materials empower young workers by helping them understand what they need to know about a job and encouraging them to ask questions if they don’t understand a task or are uncomfortable performing it. This webinar describes hazards commonly seen in the agricultural worksite, introduces the “Stand T.A.L.L.” materials and explains how and when they may be used to educate young workers, parents and employers.
