This book contains information about a project instituted in 1990 by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) to prevent work-related diseases and injuries among agricultural workers. Included are facts about 25 projects within NIOSH and 42 cooperative agreements between NIOSH and institutions in 25 states. These initiatives include surveys as well as research, intervention, surveillance, and demonstration programs. The 67 projects described in this report for 1992 address the prevention of the following work-related diseases and injuries: occupational lung diseases, musculoskeletal injuries, cancer prevention, serious occupational traumatic injuries, cardiovascular diseases, neurologic disorders, reproductive disorders, noise-induced hearing loss, dermatological conditions, psychological disorders, and infectious diseases. Most of the book is made up of fact sheets describing the funded projects. They contain such information as the personnel and skills involved, project objective, and the diseases and injuries addressed. The fact sheets consist of an executive summary, linkages with other institutions, intervention, research, intervention, assessment, and outcome. The fact sheets are organized by state, and within each state by the organization involved. A directory, also alphabetical by state, lists each project, organizational sponsor, address, telephone numbers, and project director. An acronym list and a subject list are provided. (KC)
