Agronomy Safety Training

Agronomy safety training is essential to workers in the agricultural industry. As an employer, it's your responsibility to ensure your team understands the importance of workplace safety and knows how to protect themselves and co-workers from hazards on the job.

At Safety Made Simple, we specialize in agronomy safety training that focuses on the handling, use and storage of agricultural chemicals.


Agronomic safety training courses are especially important within the agricultural industry. Exposure to agricultural chemicals can lead to serious health hazards, including respiratory problems, skin irritation and even poisoning.

Agronomy safety training focuses on education and instruction in two key areas:

  • Equipment Safety: This training prioritizes the safe use of implements of agriculture, such as anhydrous ammonia nurse tanks and fertilizer spreaders. The training includes instruction on proper operation, the necessary safety equipment, and accident prevention.

  • Chemical safety and security: This training covers the safe handling and use of pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers and other chemicals used in agriculture. Our online chemical safety training includes education on the proper handling, storage and disposal of chemicals as well as safety precautions when applying them.
