By Institute of Medicine, National Research Council, Board on Agriculture and Natural Resources, Forestry, and Fishing Research Program Committee to Review the NIOSH Agriculture

The agriculture, forestry, and fishing sectors are the cornerstone of industries that produce nutrition, fiber, and biofuel. The nationwide Institute for Occupational defense and well-being (NIOSH) conducts examine which will enhance employee security and well-being in those sectors. This nationwide learn Council publication experiences the NIOSH Agriculture, Forestry, and Fishing software to judge: the relevance of its paintings to advancements in occupational defense and overall healthiness; and the impression of analysis in decreasing place of work health problems and injuries.The overview finds that this system has made significant contributions to enhancing employee protection and healthiness in those fields. to augment the relevance and influence of its paintings and fulfil its project, the NIOSH Agriculture, Forestry, and Fishing software may still offer nationwide management, coordination of analysis, and actions to move findings, applied sciences, and knowledge into perform. this system also will take advantage of constructing strategic objectives and enforcing a complete surveillance procedure that allows you to higher determine and music employee populations in danger.

Implement Integrative and Interdisciplinary Approaches Recommendation 7: The AFF Program should implement integrative and interdisciplinary approaches in its research practices. a: Researchers that receive funding from the AFF Program should visit worksites regularly so that they can acquire understanding of the workplace environment and thus develop and integrate culturally appropriate and sensitive approaches. b: The AFF Program should increase the use of interdisciplinary teams to address the environmental, social, cultural, and psychological complexities of issues that face AFF workers.

Some research issues that have not been investigated are of great relevance to improvement of AFF worker safety and health and could substantially affect safety and health with help from NIOSH.
