Northeast Agricultural Safety and Health Coalition (NEASHC)
The Northeast Ag Safety and Health Coalition (NEASHC) is part of the Northeast Center's Outreach Program. Penn State University organized the first meeting of the coalition in 2015 and continues to partner with the NEC to increase collaborations between states, increase resources, and provide agricultural safety and health training. Currently, participating states in the NEASHC include Maine, Maryland, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Vermont.
The primary goal for the group is professional educational opportunities for agricultural safety and health educators in the northeast who coordinate agricultural safety and health programs. Additional activities for the Coalition include: access to resources and programs, increase collaboration between states, develop a directory to catalog resources in the northeast including contacts and demonstrations, increased communication between coalition members, and expansion of the coalition.
