Cooperative Extension will be providing FREE Farmworker Safety Trainings on Friday, August 31st  at the Nash County Agriculture Center.

This training is a state recognized and will assist in fulfilling some the requirements from Worker Protection Standards and Good Agricultural Practices certifications. The training consists of a 90-minute interactive session that will cover 3 topics necessary for compliance, which are pesticide safety, heat stress safety and green tobacco sickness, all in Spanish.
