UMASH continually works to respond to emerging and re-emerging issues in agricultural safety and health throughout the Upper Midwest. To do this, UMASH developed a novel ‘process model’ for selecting emerging issues, creating and implementing a response, and evaluating impact.
In a recent publication, this model is shared out, along with case studies and recommendations for its use. Partners in agricultural safety and health, as well as other disciplines, can see the model online.The authors include: Megan Schossow, UMASH Coordinator and Outreach Director; Devon Charlier, UMASH Evaluation and Communications Manager; Suness Hall, former UMASH Graduate Research Assistant in Evaluation, and Jeff Bender, UMASH Director.Read the Article
