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 nutrients, fiber, and biofuel. The nationwide Institute for Occupational protection and overall healthiness (NIOSH) conducts study so as to enhance employee defense and health and wellbeing in those sectors. This nationwide learn Council e-book stories the NIOSH Agriculture, Forestry, and Fishing software to guage: the relevance of its paintings to advancements in occupational safeguard and overall healthiness; and the impression of study in lowering place of work health problems and injuries.The evaluate unearths that this system has made significant contributions to enhancing employee protection and overall healthiness in those fields. to reinforce the relevance and influence of its paintings and fulfil its venture, the NIOSH Agriculture, Forestry, and Fishing application should still supply nationwide management, coordination of study, and actions to move findings, applied sciences, and knowledge into perform. this system also will reap the benefits of setting up strategic pursuits and imposing a entire surveillance approach with the intention to greater establish and tune employee populations in danger.

Improve Stakeholder Engagement and Partnerships Recommendation 6: The AFF Program should establish a new model to involve stakeholders throughout the research process, and should also establish an effective multipartite stakeholder mechanism that includes at-risk workers and other organizations to focus on occupational safety and health.

S. Coast Guard regulates most aspects of the industry; its Commercial Fishing Industry Vessel Safety Advisory Committee is charged with developing workable recommendations for the health and safety of vessel employees. The workforce is composed of both native-born and immigrant populations, including workers from several African nations. Of the estimated 55,000-160,000 workers exposed to occupational risk while engaged in maritime fishing activity (BLS, 2007b; NIOSH, 2007b), more than half are self-employed.

Work on agricultural risks to respiratory health conducted by AFF Program staff in collaboration with other researchers has included cutting-edge research that has moved the field forward. Several factors contributed to these successes: research that was focused and targeted, use of clear and consistent surveillance methods, involvement of key stakeholders, and motivated core staff to ensure project continuity.
