Cover Up! Head to Toe Personal Protective Equipment

This Train the Trainer course is designed for teachers, Extension staff, 4H and FFA leaders and others who work with young adults.

Agriculture is ranked as one of the most dangerous occupations and involves workers and families of all ages – but injuries can be prevented if we use the right protective equipment for the job.

This program will present an overview of common exposures in farming and ranching. Students can discuss those exposures and determine the appropriate protective gear for each scenario. In addition, two cases studies presenting common multiple exposures that young people experience are included for discussion.


By the end of this session, students will be able to: 

  • Review several of the indicators related to use of personal protective equipment (ppe) in agriculture
  • Access personal protective (ppe) educational material developed for classroom use 
  • Select decision making activities from programs designed for classroom timeframes
  • Identify safety and health resources for use in educational settings
