NORA Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing Sector Council
The Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing sector comprised more than a million paid workers in 2005. These workers face risks that include animal handling, falls, infectious diseases, overexertion, tractor rollovers, chemicals, and machinery. To learn more about the sector, visit the Inputs section of the internal NIOSH sector program's webpages. You can also read stakeholder comments relevant to this sector.
A goal of the NORA Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing Sector Council is to identify the most salient needs of this diverse sector. We seek to support the most important research, understand the most effective intervention strategies, and learn how to implement those strategies to achieve sustained improvements in workplace practice.
Join the Council as a Corresponding Member to keep informed of activities, provide input on issues to be discussed, and review draft documents. Some Corresponding Members may be asked to join workgroups on specific topics or to join as Members when openings arise. Contact the Sector Coordinator with any question or comment or to volunteer.
