Description

This course is available in English, French and Spanish.

Agricultural operations include a wide range of situations, from harvesting produce in the field to animal husbandry. Every agricultural operation is a workplace, and every workplace has hazards. In addition to existing agricultural occupational hazards, facilities that employ temporary foreign workers (TFWs) must also consider how to manage the risk of COVID-19 spread in situations such as congregate housing and group transportation.

This five module course provides information to TFWs and their employers on how to protect themselves and others from COVID-19 at work. Participants will gain knowledge of the factors that significantly contribute to the introduction and spread of COVID-19 in the workplace, the control measures to take to protect themselves while working, living and traveling to and from work, and what to do if they become sick with COVID-19.

This course is highly interactive. Pop-ups, external links, review questions, and activities are used to apply learning throughout. There is a self-assessment quiz to test understanding of the material at the end of each module. Upon completion of the course learners will be able to print a certificate of completion.

Topics include:

  • COVID-19: what it is and how it spreads, recognizing and screening for common symptoms, and when workers should isolate or quarantine
  • Masks: when and how to safely use and care for non-medical masks
  • Preventing the spread: physical distancing, good hygiene practices, cleaning and disinfecting, and ventilation
  • Temporary foreign workers in agriculture: situations specific to on-the-farm TFWs including cohorts, congregate housing, and group transportation
  • Occupational health and safety: legal rights and responsibilities, agricultural workplace hazards, personal protective equipment, and mental health resources
