Research Focus Areas at WCAHS

As a part of our mission, WCAHS conducts transferable research on the causes and prevention of agriculture-related illness and injuries. Our research spans themed focus areas including heat illness, pesticide and pollutant exposure, respiratory health, ergonomics and equipment safety, and emerging issues in agricultural health and safety.  

Our research informs training and outreach with regional growers, industry, labor, and government and non-government organizations that address agricultural safety and health.
