NIOSH Centers for Agricultural Safety and Health
“Amos Zittel & Sons, Eden, NY has utilized the Center’s workers safety program delivered in both English and Spanish languages and the pesticide fit testing for our spray program. We’ve also installed rollbars on 3 of our tractors through the ROPS program. All three programs provided useful safety measures needed to help with safety compliance.”
Owner, Amos Zittel & Sons, Inc.
“[The Lifejackets for Lobstermen project] far surpassed my expectations, and I am sure will result in lives saved. I was truly impressed and believe the Northeast Center has set a standard of excellence that we can all learn from.”
