Project Title & Description
FIFRA Special Project Grant, Worker Protection Standard (WPS) Program
This project will work to improve pesticide safety through a three-pronged approach: 1. Conduct creative group education for farm workers, incorporating games and audience participation, so that farm workers learn about measures that they can take to protect themselves from pesticides; 2. Engage volunteers and promotores de salud, or health promoters, from farm worker backgrounds to conduct pesticide education; 3. Incorporate educational materials, demonstrations and audio-visual materials in order to increase comprehension and retention of its trainings.
