Ag safety and health group celebrates 50 years

The International Society for Agricultural Safety and Health (ISASH) celebrated 5 decades of service at its recent annual conference in Burlington, Vermont. The organization traces its origins to “a small, but viable, farm safety awakening in the United States during the late 1930s.”

In 1972, ISASH was incorporated as the National Institute for Farm Safety. The name was changed last year to better reflect member needs and the work of the organization.

The national conference featured 50 sessions, including one titled Social Marketing in Agricultural Fatality and Injury Prevention.

Many safety initiatives in U.S. agriculture have involved members of the organization. Among these are:

  • The slow-moving vehicle emblem,
  • Emergency farm rescue,
  • Rollover protective structures, and
  • Assistive technologies for disabled farmers.
