Nat’l. agricultural health & safety centre created

The Canadian Centre for Health and Safety in Agriculture, a national network set up to conduct research into agriculture-related health and safety, will be housed at the University of Saskatchewan.

The centre’s operations and equipment will be funded with $2 million over the next six years from the federal government’s Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).

The network is expected to link 57 researchers in 26 institutions across the country and is one of seven new Canadian health research centres launched in the first week of November.

Dr. James Dosman, Director of the U of S Institute of Agricultural, Rural and Environmental Health, will head the new centre.

Its mandate is to explore health and safety issues for farm families and rural workers that result from inhalation exposures, food and water contamination and adverse working conditions.
