Smoke hazards in the Agricultural Workplace; a bilingual survey for agricultural employers

Agricultural workers are exposed to fine particulate matter from wildfire smoke given the nature of their work. The purpose of the proposed study is to explore and compare perceptions of air quality monitoring, health impacts, and hazard communication strategies among Spanish- and English-speaking agricultural employers and employees. Findings from our bilingual survey will be disseminated through peer-reviewed journals, conferences, and industry stakeholders.
