Abstract

Vaccine preventable diseases are, so far, a main focus of Public Health programmes all over the world since people still die in consequence of Dyphteria or Tetanus. Biological risk is widely represented in agriculture and animal breeding, due to environmental characteristics and to injury typology. Moreover, aged people and migrants represent a significant part of the workforce. These two groups are, for instance, more exposed to Clostridium tetani infection because not fully immunized. Among infectious diseases that can affect agricultural workers, just tetanus can be well controlled by immunization programmes. Teaching and training activities are the most important tools to get protection against Leptospira interrogans, Salmonella spp and hepatitis E Virus infection. As for every training activity, linguistic and cultural barriers have to be taken into account.
