Review & Evaluation: 2012 Independent Program Review
An independent review of the NIOSH AgFF Program was completed in June 2012 as a follow-up to the 2007 National Academies review . The 2012 review covered the period 2006-2011. This review was not conducted by the National Academies, however, many members of the 2007 National Academies review panel participated in the 2012 review and an identical framework, criteria, and scoring structure was used.
The findings of the 2012 review recognized the AgFF Program for building new partnerships, developing a comprehensive set of goals, addressing many of the recommendations from the 2007 review, and achieving multiple impacts and outcomes. The recent progress and accomplishments of the NIOSH AgFF program were reflected in the 2012 review scores of 5 for relevance of its work to improve occupational safety and health within the sector and 4 for impact on reducing workplace illnesses and injuries. Primary recommendations of the five-year review include surveillance, worksite size dilemmas, defining worksite ‘populations at risk’, use of printed media, emerging animal agriculture production practices, forestry and fishing issues, and climate change implications.
