The NIOSH Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing (AgFF) Program provides leadership to prevent work-related injuries and illnesses among workers in agriculture, forestry, and commercial fishing nation-wide. Agricultural safety and health has been an important focus for NIOSH for more than 30 years. The AgFF Program covers extremely diverse technical and geographical issues and a broad variety of safety and health risks in some of the most dangerous industries in the country: agriculture, commercial fishing and logging. The program is dedicated to conducting top-quality and high-priority safety and health research such as developing practical solutions, engaging in effective partnerships, and translating research to practice. The NIOSH Office of Agriculture Safety and Health (OASH) coordinates the AgFF Program and facilitates the National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA) for AgFF, a multi-stakeholder partnership program that builds consensus around AgFF safety and health research and practice goals and priorities for the nation.
