|FARSHA Agricultural Health and Safety Specialists and Regional Safety Consultants are available to deliver health and safety training to farm employers and workers anywhere in British Columbia. Training varies from a few hours to a full day or more, depending on the topic. Almost all are free of charge and can be held at your farm or at a community site that you organize. Many of these courses are also available in other languages besides English.
FARSHA also periodically offers Pesticide Applicator Certificate courses for general agriculture, in English, Vietnamese or Punjabi. (There is a modest fee for this course, to cover the cost of the course materials.) Call the FARSHA office for more information.
In addition, FARSHA can help you coordinate First Aid Attendant training. (This training is delivered by non-FARSHA providers, and is available in English, Punjabi or Spanish; a reduced fee is charged by these providers.)
