North American Guidelines for Children's Agricultural Tasks (NAGCAT) featured
Guidelines designed to assist parents and others in assigning appropriate farm tasks to children are featured in a new resource published by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).
The North American Guidelines for Children's Agricultural Tasks (NAGCAT) are the subject of an Impact Sheet, part of a series of products that are designed to clearly and concisely communicate the relevance and impact of research to industry, labor, academic, government, and non-government stakeholders. Impact Sheets briefly describe an occupational safety or health hazard, the specific NIOSH or NIOSH-funded research activity that was conducted to address the hazard, the resulting impact or recommendations, and certain salient statistics.
The NAGCAT Impact Sheet is located at http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/docs/2011-129/. A printable version can be found at http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/docs/2011-129/pdfs/2011-129.pdf.
