Illinois Network for Agricultural Safety and Health

The Illinois Network for Agricultural Safety and Health (INASH) addresses agricultural safety and health issues in Illinois by promoting and improving intervention efforts. INASH members represent a broad range of agencies and organizations with interest and expertise in agricultural safety and health.

INASH is a forum that brings together diverse segments of the agricultural community. We develop, coordinate, and implement strategies to reduce the frequency and severity of injuries and illnesses associated with agriculture. INASH was created because agriculture is one of the most hazardous industries in Illinois. The membership of INASH comes from the farming community, health and safety professionals, and representatives of the industry in the state of Illinois.

Some of the issues of concern to INASH include:

  • Agricultural Injury
  • Agricultural Illnesses
  • Agricultural Family Safety
  • Rural Emergency, Medical and Rehabilitation Services

INASH offers several benefits to its members such as:

  • Membership Networking
  • INASH Resource Directory
  • Bulletin Board (a newsletter of state and national news and activities)
  • Access to training resources, and
  • Reduced fees for conferences.
