Abstract
The general design of the Conference was to, first in plenary session, address its purpose, then provide direction through keynote speeches and questions, and pose some assumptions about the future of both the agricultural workforce and workplace. The titles of the sessions and titles in this document corresponding to this part of the Conference are: The Potential for a National Coalition, Looking Ahead to the Next Century, Questions to Guide the National Agenda, Medical Intervention Problems and Opportunities, and Issues that Affect the National Agenda. The Conference included five concurrent sessions dealing with the issues of surveillance, research, and intervention. The proceedings from these sessions are addressed in this document in the chapters entitled Surveillance-Agriculture-Related Diseases, Injuries, and Hazards, Research-Chemical and Biological Hazards, Research-Mechanical and Physical Hazards, Intervention-Worker Protection from Environmental Hazards, Intervention-Safe Behaviors among Adults and Children. Within each of these sessions, presentations of factual information were made, and discussions ensued from the perspectives of a range of interested parties.
