We currently have three outreach toolkits that include pertinent information and resources to help you present safety information about roadway safety and manure gas handling.
Hearing Loss Prevention Training Toolkit
The Hearing Loss Prevention Training Kit includes information, handouts, posters, displays, and two classroom lessons to help you present information that will guide farmers on:
- Why farmers should be concerned about noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL),
- Which activities/environments involve hazardous noise exposures, and
- What farmers can do to reduce noise exposure on the farm and/or prevent NIHL.
The following “train-the-trainer” introduction will help presenters understand what farmers can do to decrease their chances of experiencing noise-induced hearing loss and tinnitus. This kit was developed using findings from decades of research (see references), outreach materials created by the Great Plains Center for Agricultural Health (GPCAH) staff, and items created by other organizations dedicated to hearing loss prevention.
Rural Roadway Safety Training Toolkit
The Roadway Safety Training Kit includes information, handouts, posters, a game, and other helpful resources to help you present information that will guide farmers on:
- How and why to adopt the lighting and marking recommendations published by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) in 2016, and
- Identifying risk factors for when and where crashes between farm equipment and passenger vehicles are most likely to occur.
This “train-the-trainer” introduction will help presenters understand what farmers can do to decrease their chances of being in a crash with a passenger vehicle. This kit was generated using findings from research conducted by investigators at the Great Plains Center for Agricultural Health (GPCAH).
The Gas Monitor Training Toolkit
The Gas Monitor Training Kit was developed to help present information on guiding livestock producers on how to select and use hydrogen sulfide (H2S) monitors when performing tasks that are known to release deadly concentrations of hydrogen sulfide.
