Milestone: 4,000 incidents now available 
We have now collected information on 4,000 incidents, available in our database, detailing the injuries of more than 5,000 victims. Our team continues to collect, load, and code injury cases. With the help of modern software solutions, and sustained support from our collaborators, we will continue to distribute these data and information. As always, we encourage your questions, input, and involvement. There is much work to be done on the ag safety and health front.
