Why Do I Need Safety Training?

In accordance with the standards listed, many industries require that employees are trained in first aid. Additionally, under the General Duty Clause, Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are required to provide a workplace that "is free from recognizable hazards that are causing or likely to cause death or serious harm to employees."

Under these regulations, Employers have a legal and ethical obligation to teach employees about first aid procedures. In an agricultural setting, medical personnel may have difficulty responding to incidents. By training employees in first aid, the agricultural workplace becomes a safer one.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are first aid kits required at an agricultural worksite?

Under regulations, employers are required to provide a safe workspace for their employees. First aid kits are essential on farms in the event of an accident. These kits can help keep injured workers alive until EMS can arrive on site and provide more specialized care.

Are pesticides of any concern to agricultural workers?

Pesticides commonly used in farm operations can have dangerous side effects if not handled properly. Workers should know how to correctly approach areas that have been exposed to pesticides. They should also know what to do in the event of an exposure.

Is CPR different in agricultural first aid?

The core of CPR is the same throughout any industry. What may change is the setting. In agriculture, workers trained in CPR need to be prepared for longer response times from medical personnel. They should know how to conserve their strength so they can provide CPR effectively until help arrives.

What do workers need to know in first aid besides CPR?

There are many dangers to be found on an agricultural worksite. Everything from machines to wildlife can be dangerous if incorrectly handled. Workers will need to know how to react to these and many other scenarios that can pop up on the farm. By knowing these procedures, they will feel more confident while on the job.
