AmeriCorps SAFE Program
In partnership with the Association of Farmworker Opportunity Programs (AFOP), Proteus, Inc. is proud to host four AmeriCorps SAFE members.
- Provide FREE bilingual training to farmworkers in Pesticide and Heat Stress Prevention.
- These trainings satisfy the requirements under EPA’s Worker Protection Standard (WPS) and CAL-OSHA’S Heat Stress Standard.
- Each trainee will receive a training verification card and the employer will receive a copy of the training roster.
- We go to your work site to conduct the training sessions.
- Our trainings are interactive and we give out prizes for participation.
- We require shade and seating for the farmworkers during the training sessions.
