NORMAL, IL -- The largest annual gathering of professionals dedicated to agricultural safety and health will take place June 21-24, when the International Society for Agricultural Safety and Health (ISASH) holds its conference in Normal, IL.

Registration is open at www.isash.org. Early bird deadline is May 15. ISASH membership includes engineers, educators, insurers, physicians, nurses, veterinarians, statisticians, communicators, anthropologists, business leaders and others -- all of whom play influential roles in agricultural safety and health.

In addition to the regular conference, attendees will have the option of extending their week by attending a certificate course, "Establishing Competency in Core Knowledge in the Agricultural Safety and Health Profession."

ISASH incorporated in 1962 as the National Institute for Farm Safety. Many safety initiatives in U.S. agriculture have involved members of ISASH or its predecessors, including: slow-moving vehicle emblem; emergency farm rescue; rollover protective structures; assistive technologies for disabled farmers; and hand signals.
