Keeping Farmworkers Safe

AgSafe is dedicated to keeping farmworkers safe and healthy through training and outreach focused on the various hazards inherent in farming today. We work diligently with both farmers and farmworkers alike to ensure these tireless men and women have the information and essential skills needed to return to their families each day.

Since our formation in 1991, AgSafe has educated over 30,000 farmers, farm labor contractors, frontline supervisors and farmworkers in the critical safety, health and human resources issues impacting California's agricultural industry.

 

We take a "boots on the ground" approach, not only teaching the importance of staying safe but the best ways to actually protect people.  We cover everything from heat illness prevention and First Aid/CPR to safe chemical handling and how to safely operate a tractor.

 

Our bicultural staff - over half of which are children of farmworkers - work in collaboriation with over 250 volunteers throughout California to provide our hands-on workshops and assist farmers in their efforts to protect farmworkers. 

 

We firmly believe that farmworkers are the backbone in California's efforts to feed the world and as such, should be kept safe and healthy.  Join us in our work to ensure they are empowered with this critical knowledge and continue to put food on our tables!
