Safety Training for Community and Faith-Based Outreach Workers - "Hazards We May Face When Helping Others"

These training materials have been developed by collaboration between the Medical College of Wisconsin, the Wisconsin Committee on Occupational Safety and Health (WisCOSH), and outreach organization partners, to help Outreach Workers be safer.  This was supported by a Susan Harwood grant from the U.S. Department of Labor, OSHA.

A complete training kit is provided, which will enable a trainer to provide a 50-minute safety training session for outreach workers.  The kit includes:

Trainers

We recommend you download necessary documents and watch/download the appropriate video.  The downloadable Windows Media video files are large, and may take approximately 30 minutes to download.

 Outreach Worker

We recommend you download the Outreach Worker's Guide and watch/download the appropriate video, in the language needed.  The downloadable Windows Media video files are large, and may take approximately 30 minutes to download.

  • The Outreach Worker's Guide helps workers identify and control hazards. (DOC)
