Abstract

The overall goal of this project was to improve the safety and health of farmers, farm family members, and farm workers based upon local community involvement and leadership. The South Carolina Farm Leaders for Agricultural Safety and Health (FLASH) program proposed to develop leaders in agricultural safety and health at the community level. Specifically, it was designed to bring together farm operators and their spouses to teach them about safety and health issues on farms, to provide them with training in injury prevention and community empowerment, and to challenge and assist them in developing agricultural safety and health programs in their communities and agricultural organizations.
