NASD: National Ag Safety Database
This database was developed with funding from the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). The information contained in NASD was contributed by safety professionals and organizations from across the nation. Specifically, the objectives of the NASD project are:
- to provide a national resource for the dissemination of information;
- to educate workers and managers about occupational hazards associated with agriculture-related injuries, deaths and illnesses;
- to provide prevention information;
- to promote the consideration of safety and health issues in agricultural operations;
- to provide a convenient way for members of the agricultural safety and health community to share educational and research materials with their colleagues

Kentucky Fatality Assessment and
Control Evaluation (FACE) Program
The Kentucky FACE Program is funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to conduct surveillance of all work-related deaths occurring in Kentucky. Data is collected from a variety of sources for surveillance, and on-site evaluation of occupational fatalities. With this information, prevention materials are developed and disseminated to workers in similar industries and occupations.

Local newspapers are an excellent source for reading real-life stories about injuries and sadly, deaths, resulting from rural and agricultural incidents which most likely could have
been avoided if the proper precautions had been taken. A far too common headline in newspapers includes an injury or death to an adolescent occurring on an ATV. Wearing protective equipment, such as a helmet, while riding an ATV will reduce the risk of injury or death.
