The Southeast Center for Agricultural Health & Injury Prevention (SCAHIP) is located at the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture in Lexington. Continuously funded by NIOSH since 1992, SCAHIP focuses on health and safety for workers in the Agriculture, Fish & Forestry Industries.
*USDA's National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) will host a webinar to bring together formal and non-formal educators, non-profit partners, and government agencies to explore how NIFA-funded programs are supporting farm safety and farm safety education. The webinar will include a panel of project directors from the Assistive Technology Program for Farmers with Disabilities (AgrAbility) and the Youth Farm Safety Education and Certification (YFSEC) Program. The panel will explore how communities are promoting safety in agriculture by developing agricultural educators; providing technical assistance to farm workers and farmers; and training the next generation of agriculturalists to prevent injuries and fatalities on the farm.
