The Childhood Agricultural Safety Network (CASN) was formed to strengthen partnerships and collaborations of national organizations dedicated to keeping children safe on the farm. These organizations represent the agricultural community, child injury prevention, and minority-serving associations.
The mission of CASN is to "set a vision and provide leadership and coordination of childhood agricultural injury prevention efforts in a manner that is both geographically and ethnically diverse".
2012 Blueprint for Protecting Children in Agriculture published
The 2012 Blueprint takes an updated look at preventing childhood agricultural injury and death. The Blueprint endeavor builds upon the 1996 plan that launched a national initiative leading to a remarkable reduction in nonfatal injuries among children who live on, visit and work on farms. The 2012 Blueprint re-sets priorities to reflect changes in agricultural production and worker profiles.
Funding for CASN is received from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).
