A Top Three Dangerous Industry
The agricultural industry is one of the most dangerous industries and primarily involves those who work with, or around, plants and animals on a daily basis—growing crops, raising animals, or harvesting timber, fish, or animals from a farm or ranch.
These individuals experience one of the worst accident and occupational ill-health records of any major employment sector. In fact, more recent data from the National Safety Council (NSC) reflects the agricultural industry experienced the highest fatality rates per 100,000 deaths in 2020. This is one of the many reasons that PPE for agricultural workers is a must-have.
Dirty Work Requires Protective Clothing
Farmers and agricultural workers face numerous hazards. The three most common include animal-acquired infections, chemicals used in conjunction with crops, and respiratory-related risks. To safely maintain their daily routine, these critical workers need reliable protective clothing that can handle multiple threats without compromising safety.
Commercialized growing operations continue to develop and grow, causing a rise in the need for to grow room PPE and formalized safety regulations. With cannabis being a consumable, it’s critical to not only protect the plants from contaminants, but to also protect cannabis workers from the chemical, physical, and biological hazards present.Learn More
Livestock & Avian
Animals are known carriers of disease and infection such as salmonella, rabies, avian flu, and Ebola. Zoonotic diseases, or those that can transfer from humans to animals and vice-versa, can be acquired through contact with bacteria in feces, bodily fluids, or animal carcasses. Not only are the infected animals a risk, but airborne particulates can also carry bacteria, diseases, mold, or toxic chemicals.Learn More
Pesticides and Harsh Chemicals
Commercial crop growing requires the use of numerous phytosanitary products (pesticides, fungicides, insecticides, herbicides, etc.) to keep crops healthy and pest-free, in addition to fertilizers and plant nutrients. However, these chemicals can be highly toxic in high concentrations—even fatal—especially with prolonged or repeated exposure without adequate chemical-resistant PPE for harvesting and maintenance.Learn More
