  • Description:
    The Pacific Northwest Agricultural Safety and Health Center (PNASH) is one of 11 agricultural research and prevention centers funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. Founded in 1996, PNASH addresses local needs for our farming, fishing, and forestry work forces, and is now entering a new cycle (2016-2021) with multiple innovative research projects. PNASH works with partners in industry, labor, health services, professional organizations, and academia.

    We focus on the needs of vulnerable populations including women, farmworkers, and immigrant forestry workers. Our current priorities include:

    • Reducing exposure to high-risk pesticides in agricultural work and communities

    • Preventing heat-related illness among agricultural workers

    • Addressing serious injuries among dairy, forestry, and commercial fishing workers
