Agricultural Safety & Health

The Agricultural Safety and Health (ASH) training program is designed to...

  • Provide the essential education required to address the critical shortage of agricultural occupational health and safety professionals, particularly in the Southeast.

  • Produce not only well informed practitioners, but also leaders and researchers for the next generation of agricultural safety and health (ASH) specialists.

  • Equip students with an in-depth understanding of agricultural health and safety issues within the student’s chosen public health discipline: e.g., Biostatistics, Epidemiology, Health Services Management, Environmental Health, or Health Behavior. Emphasis is placed on the application of theoretical, analytical, and management principles to agricultural populations, while at the same time preparing graduates for practice as part of larger, trans-disciplinary teams.
