What are our priorities?
The Central States Center for Agricultural Safety and Health (CS-CASH) is one of 11 agricultural education, research and prevention centers funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. CS-CASH has just completed the first cooperative agreement period (2011-2016) and is entering the second (2016-2021) with new research projects. CS-CASH works with partners in industry, labor, trade associations, professional organizations, and academia, focusing on these areas:
- Protecting respiratory health of agricultural workers exposed to dust, gases, and mists.
- Preventing hearing loss among agricultural workers in noisy environments.
- Preventing traumatic injury among farmers and ranchers working in production agriculture.
