NSC Presents Award for Collaborative Occupational Research

The Immigrant Dairy Worker Health and Safety project was developed by Migrant Clinicians Network, the National Farm Medicine Center, and five partners.

The National Safety Council has presented its inaugural Stakeholder Collaboration in Occupational Injury Research award to the Migrant Clinicians Network, the National Farm Medicine Center, and five partners who collaborated on the project Seguridad en las Lecherias: Immigrant Dairy Worker Health and Safety. According to an NSC news release, the project addressed the health and safety educational needs of immigrant agricultural workers in Wisconsin.

The award was presented at the 2015 National Occupational Injury Research Symposium (NOIRS) at Camp Dawson Training Center in Kingwood, W.Va. It includes a $1,000 prize.

"Working together gives us the greatest opportunity to save lives and prevent injuries," said Deborah A.P. Hersman, president and CEO of the National Safety Council.  "NSC is excited to present the inaugural Stakeholder Collaboration in Occupational Injury Research Award to the National Farm Medicine Center, the Migrant Clinicians Network, and their five partners. Their collaborative efforts to reach a population of workers in dire need of attention set them apart from other nominees."

The Stakeholder Collaboration in Occupational Injury Research award recognizes exemplary partnerships that could help lead to a decline in fatal workplace injuries.
