The overall health of a person can have a significant effect on their ability to work safely and produce a quality product in a timely manner. Many of our migrant and seasonal farm workers bring with them similar baseline health issues as their local counterparts. Combine this with language, cultural, and transportation barriers you have a particularly challenging problem. Enter the Maine Mobile Health program. On this episode of the MEMIC Safety Experts Podcast, Lisa Tapert, CEO of Maine Mobile Health and I talk about America’s Seasonal and Migrant Farm Workers, the safety and health challenges they face, and what Maine Mobile Health has been doing to support both the growers and workers.
