Current research projects address challenges in surveillance of injuries, community-based initiatives to address migrant occupational health challenges and tractor rollover protection. Outreach and education activities include on-farm safety trainings and surveys and farm emergency response training in the areas of first aid, CPR, and fire extinguisher training. Clinical Consultation is provided through our Farmers' Occupational Health Clinic, a diagnostic clinic that can include a worksite assessment as needed. Our center also includes a library which serves the agricultural community, as well as safety and health professionals.
