Abstract

In collaboration with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), the Southeast Center announces the availability of awards for 12 month feasibility projects that focus on improving occupational safety and health among workers in production agriculture, forestry, and commercial fishing/aquaculture.

Any research, prevention/intervention, or education/translation project focusing on an important occupational safety and health need in production agriculture, forestry/logging, and commercial fishing is welcome. The Southeast Center emphasizes stakeholder engagement, measurable outcomes, and the translation of research to practice (r2p). Literature reviews will not be funded, nor will projects that merely disseminate information. Novel educational programs with a strong evaluation component may be considered. Studies ofoccupational hazards and their prevention in forestry and logging are encouraged.
