    Marshfield Clinic Report, 2012

    ABSTRACT:
    This National Action Plan takes an updated look at preventing childhood agricultural injury and death.  The Blueprint endeavor builds upon the 1996 plan that launched a national initiative leading to a remarkable reduction in nonfatal injuries among children who live on, visit and work onfarms. The 2012 Blueprint re-sets priorities to reflect changes in agricultural production and worker profiles. The Blueprint is a product of input from the general public as well as leading researchers in childhood agricultural safety and health. Draft versions of goals and strategies were critiqued by nearly 100 stakeholders, and then posted online to solicit further public input.

    The 38-page report emphasizes the need for:

    – Affordable, accessible and high quality child care options for farm families and hired farm workers.

    – Increased involvement of employers, farm organizations and agribusinesses in creating a culture of safety.

    – Improved injury and fatality data collection with inclusion of underserved populations such as Anabaptists and seasonal workers.

    – Increased attention to reaching young farm parents and teen workers via social media outlets.
