Agriculture Safety and Health Research Center Portfolio

In 1990, Congress established a National Program for Occupational Safety and Health in Agriculture to assist in the NIOSH mission, and to lead a national effort in surveillance, research, and intervention. This program has had a significant and measurable impact on reducing adverse health effects among agricultural workers. As part of this program, Agricultural Safety and Health Research Centers were established across the United States.

These Centers conduct research, education, and prevention projects to address the nation's pressing agricultural safety and health problems. Geographically, the Centers are distributed throughout the nation to be responsive to the agricultural safety and health issues unique to the different regions. Through these efforts, the Centers help to ensure that actions to prevent disease and injury in agriculture are taken based upon scientific findings. The annual reports are offered as an overview resource of the Center's activities.
