The term “multiplier effect” is a term you may be familiar with and one commonly used in the world of economics.
UMASH and our neighboring U.S. Agricultural Safety and Health Centers also apply the multiplier effect in the world of safety and health as it relates to reaching farmers, farm families and workers.
UMASH and our colleagues from the Great Plains Center for Agricultural Health (GP-CAH) and the National Children’s Center for Rural and Agricultural Health and Safety at the National Farm Medicine Center (NFMC) and the Central States Center for Agricultural Safety and Health (CS-CASH) work closely together to bring agricultural safety and health information and resources to the Upper Midwest. While each center is unique in their specific resources, we work as a team to reach attendees with the most up to date information to prevent injuries and put safety first.
Our three centers will be on hand at Farmfest 2019 in the Farm Bureau Financial Services Wellness and Safety Pavilion to offer resources, suggestions and information on protecting farmers and their farms from costly injuries.
By combining our efforts efforts in research, education and prevention we can offer you “multiple” ways to stay safe and healthy on the farm. Visit us at Farmfest along with the many other exhibitors for information on wellness, safety and health.
