Who We Are


Research for healthy workers, strong communities and productive agriculture.


The Pacific Northwest Agricultural Safety and Health Center conducts research and promotes best safety and health practices for Northwest producers, workers, and communities in farming, fishing, and forestry.

Our Approach

  • Partner with workers, employers, and communities.
  • Engage stakeholders to establish research priorities and respond to regional needs.
  • Transfer solutions to the workplace through training, outreach, and participatory research.

How we work illustration

Our Research

  • Addresses hazards that cause the greatest burden of injury and illness and where research will make a difference for workers and communities.
