Agricultural Safety & Health Program

Agriculture is one of the most hazardous industries in the U.S. affecting a wide demographic.

The diversity of audience groups is reflective of the fact that agriculture does not have occupational restraints like other industries, especially regarding workforce age, competency level, and certain regulatory practices. Teaching injury prevention practices in this environment requires a specific approach. The OSU Ag. Safety and Health Program directs, coordinates, and administers educational programs, demonstrations and resources to support agriculture and the safety of those working in the industry.
