Abstract
NIOSH developed the Agricultural Health Promotion Systems (AHPS) program which was a cooperative agreement program with a goal of reducing the incidence of fatal and nonfatal traumatic injury, chronic injury, and occupational diseases among the 3.4 million agricultural workers and their families in the United States. Program activities which occurred during the first year of the anticipated 3 year program were described. State programs were undertaken in agriculture, forestry and fishing. Increased efforts to monitor agricultural fatalities, injuries and illness were undertaken in 13 programs. Agricultural safety and health education was promoted by 14 programs. Specific programs in Vermont, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Virginia, Arizona, California, Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Washington, and Wisconsin were briefly described.
