Abstract
Three national organizations joined for the first time to cohost the 2004 National Symposium on Agricultural Health and Safety. It was a fitting collaboration for the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Agricultural Health and Safety Centers, the North American Agromedicine Consortium (NAAC) and the National Institute for Farm Safety (NIFS). The collective mission of these three groups is to serve those employed in production agriculture.. The conference setting in the Colorado Rockies seemed to enhance attendance. More than 250 participants from 35 states and six countries registered for conference sessions. Additional participants came to either exhibit health and safety products, or to attend one day's sessions. The sponsorship of three diverse organizations underscored the key conference theme, which was to enhance multidisciplinary opportunities to discuss and address the health and safety issues in production agriculture. Attendees included health and safety professionals, university based researchers, Cooperative Extension personnel, physicians, nurses, representatives of industries supporting th.e agricultural enterprise (e.g., manufacturers of implements, the seed crop industry), veterinarians, representatives of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, NIOSH and, most importantly, those employed in agricultural production.
