AgSafe, an agriculture-based safety organization, has developed a food safety training course for produce harvesting. This class will be helpful to everyone in the produce business especially those involved in harvesting specialty crops.  It will give supervisors, foremen, crew leads and field workers basic knowledge regarding sanitation and hygiene principles that are often noted in food safety audits.

As farmers look for ways to increase productivity and maximize worker performance, many companies have added night shifts to their operations.  Although working at night enables companies to harvest and process more produce, night shifts can also have negative consequences: they expose more workers to injuries and accidents while also making it more difficult to work in limited lighting.
