Proceedings of the NIOSH Symposium on Efforts to Prevent Injury and Disease Among Agricultural Workers, August 25-27, 1993, Lexington, Kentucky. Washington, DC: National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, 1994 Jul; :264-266
It is difficult to judge, at this time, what is going to happen in the 21st century and what farming is going to be like in. But it is likely that the agricultural community will still be facing many of the hazards they face today. We will continue to need safety and health intervention and prevention programs well into the next century and probably for many centuries to come. This conference has been an important forum, both on examining our progress and for looking ahead to the future needs of agriculture. If we are going to improve agricultural safety and health in the 21st century, it is crucial that we continue to plan for the future.
