Leave your IPod and your wallet at home. If you must bring your phone, leave it in your lunch box, or with your bus driver. Anything lost in the field is next to impossible to find. We cannot be responsible for lost or stolen items. If you have any medical conditions, such as allergies or asthma, or require daily medication let your supervisor know before beginning work.
Eating a big breakfast is the single most important thing you can do to have a good day!!!
To avoid chaffing and discomfort, we recommend you wear compression shorts or some other Under amour type leggings under your pants. Frog Tog or Bog Tog type rain gear does not hold up in corn fields, therefore is not recommended.
All workers will be provided safety glasses, hats with nets, gloves, and a mask (to be worn on the bus). Personal SAFETY GLASSES must be stamped with a “Z-87”. If you wear prescription glasses you must wear safety glasses over them or safety side shields (provided). You must wear long pants and a sleeved shirt~no shorts or tank tops! You MUST wear your safety equipment and proper attire at all times in the field. Failure to do so will result in disciplinary action, up to and including termination.
*You are responsible for any daily medication you may need. (Inhaler for asthma, Epipen for bee sting.)
