    USU professor leads an agricultural health and safety group

    LOGAN – Utah State University Associate Professor Michael Pate is the President of the International Society for Agricultural Health and Safety, or ISASH.  He said ISASH doesn’t exist to tell farmers how to do their jobs.

    “Nobody knows better how to get things done than a farmer,” Pate exclaimed. “What we try to see our role is to be able to empower those that will be able to provide resources and help in any way — whether it be mental health or occupational safety — what we want to see is the sustainability of our American farmer.”

    Dr. Pate said national statistics indicate farming is among the most dangerous jobs in America. Farmers regularly work with large vehicles and potentially dangerous equipment.
