This large multiyear project is now (FY10) in the informative phase. We are developing partnerships to help us in all phases of the project from development to intervention.
Q1: Gathering data:
Work with WESTAT on NAWS & SENSOR
Work with RAND on OSHA/EPA enforcement data
Q2: Work on OR OSHA data
Q3: Outreach efforts: Partners and Stakeholders
Develop partnerships to identify PPE concerns in PH
Develop FLYER and PPE hotline for PH and their employers
Q4: Complete reporting on NAWS, SENSOR, CA PISP & OR OSHA
3 Posters for NIOSH Agricultural Sector Meeting, ASHCA, AIHce
2 Posters for NPPTL stakeholder meeting
Invited Presentation for Annual Oregon Pesticide Inspector's Forum
Bilingual PPE Hotline for pesticide handlers and employers
Flyer (English and Spanish) & Guidance document for stakeholders
4 Reports (NAWS, SENSOR, CA PISP, OR OSHA ) and 1 publication summarizing applicable PPE regulations
By identifying barriers we will inform the development of interventions including training materials, which in turn may improve PPE practices by reducing PPE barriers to best practices. Understanding PPE practices may improve employer policies, reduce exposures to workers and their families; and reduce pesticide illnesses, including cancer and other diseases.
