UMASH Heads South this Winter for ASHCA Conference

UMASH Heads South this Winter for ASHCA Conference

The Agricultural Safety and Health Council of America (ASHCA) annual conference was held February 21-23 in Scottsdale, AZ. Carrie Klumb represented UMASH with a table full of center-created resources. UMASH made connections with researchers, non-profits, and farmers from throughout the United States all motivated to improve ag worker health and safety. Several people were interested in incorporating our resources into their on-farm safety programs or into their classrooms.

Carrie was also able to attend sessions that covered topics such as: strategies to build support for ag health and safety, building a safety culture, a 2020 vision for safeguarding youth working in agriculture, strategies for farm worker health, wellness, and wellbeing, and front line supervisors: your keys to safety program implementation.

The ASHCA meeting was a great place to connect with other Ag centers, learn about new non-profits, and speak directly with those working on farms. This was a great opportunity to get our resources into the hands of those working on the front lines of ag workers health and safety.
