One Health

ONE HEALTH IN AGRICULTURAL SAFETY AND HEALTH

 

The UMASH embraces a One Health philosophy toward improving the health and well being of agricultural workers and their families.

A One Health model addresses human health in the context of animal, plant, and environmental health by developing partnerships to solve complex problems.


The One Health philosophy plays a key role in UMASH research, education, and prevention projects:

    • Zoonotic diseases are caused by pathogens that are transmissible between humans and animals. What are they? How are they being transferred? How can they be prevented?
    • Changes in production practices that benefit animal health and well-being can impact worker health and safety.
    • Injuries and lost days of work place a financial burden on farmers and producers. Reducing injuries should be a farm business economic strategy.
    • Technology is being used to help clinicians and farmers get injured workers back on the job quicker.
    • Culturally appropriate training curriculum has been developed and is being tested training immigrant dairy workers
