Farm Labor Safety Training

AmeriCorps SAFE (Serving America’s Farm Workers Everywhere) Program

In partnership with the Association of Farmworker Opportunity Programs (AFOP), Proteus, Inc. is proud to host four AmeriCorps SAFE members.

Services:

  • Provide FREE bilingual training to farmworkers in Pesticide and Heat Stress Prevention.
  • These trainings satisfy the requirements under EPA’s Worker Protection Standard (WPS) and CAL-OSHA’S Heat Stress Standard.
  • Each trainee will receive a training verification card and the employer will receive a copy of the training roster.
  • We go to your work site to conduct the training sessions.
  • Our trainings are interactive and we give out prizes for participation.
  • We require shade and seating for the farmworkers during the training sessions.
