Abstract
The purpose of this pilot study was to determine the willingness of the farm community to participate in a farm safety health initiative (expanding a community-based health program to include elements of the Certified Safe Farm program), as well as understand farmers' experiences with participation in the intervention. Focus groups and individual interviews were held to explore farmers' experience with the expanded health screening and on farm safety review. Results indicate that incorporation of the expanded intervention was well accepted amongst participants in this study.
