Outdoor workers are exposed to many types of wildlife hazards and encounters often depend on the type of work, geographic region, season, and duration of time spend outside. Biological hazards include vector-borne diseases, venomous wildlife and insects, and poisonous plants. Venomous snakes, spiders, scorpions, and stinging insects can be found throughout various geographic regions and are especially dangerous to workers who have allergies.
Poisonous plants can cause allergic reactions if their oils encounter skin. These plants can also be dangerous if burned and their toxins are inhaled.
The training prepares outdoor workers about anticipated workplace wildlife safety including wildlife hazard recognition, prevention of exposures, and response accidents, incidents and near-misses.
