Hop harvest and processing safety webinar now available on demand

Hop growers looking to learn more about the risk and prevention of respiratory disease associated with hop harvest and processing are encouraged to view this recorded webinar.

If you couldn’t join us for the live, one-hour webinar on “Your Lungs, Your Life: Respiratory disease in hop growing and processing” with Carolyn Whitaker and Dave Bonauto from the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries Safety & Health Assessment & Research for Prevention (SHARP) Program, then you can still view the webinar recording online.

In this webinar you will learn how to keep your lungs healthy while growing and processing hops, including what to watch for, when to see a doctor, hop jobs associated with respiratory disease, and what you can do to protect yourself and employees.

Since the webinar is prerecorded, any questions should be directed to the speakers that provided their contact information during the webinar. Email Michigan State University Extension’s Erin Lizotte at taylo548@msu.edu with any additional questions.
