NCAE offers ‘Mitigating Heat Stress and Increasing Productivity’ webinar

The National Council of Agricultural Employers has announced the next installment of its educational webinar series, “Mitigating Heat Stress and Increasing Productivity.”

“In anticipation of climbing temperatures later this spring and into the summer, NCAE and its members continue the organization’s commitment to the health and safety of America’s essential farmworkers,” Michael Marsh, president and CEO, said in a news release. “This webinar extends NCAE’s commitment to our collaborative efforts with the National Center for Farmworker Health (NCFH) in protecting worker safety and well-being.  The event will put front and center how agricultural employers can protect their employees in the face of changing environmental conditions.”

“Mitigating Heat Stress and Increasing Productivity” will be hosted by Bethany Boggess Alcauter, director of Evaluation & National Agricultural Worker Health Program with the NCFH.  Participants will have an opportunity to engage with Alcauter about strategies that they can employ on their farms and ranches to keep their workers safe from the impacts of rising temperatures.

The “Mitigating Heat Stress and Increasing Productivity” webinar featuring Alcauter is scheduled for Thursday, April 28, at 1 p.m. EDT/10 a.m. PDT. Participants will be eligible to receive one Professional Development Credit from the Society for Human Resource Management upon completion of the webinar

“Our educational and compliance webinars are extremely popular and typically fill up very quickly,” Marsh said. “Please register as soon as possible to ensure you secure your spot in this important discussion.”
