EU Cost Action network

The BeSAFE project is aligned with the EU funded  (COST Action) SACURIMA. . https://www.sacurima.eu/

This network of European researchers seeks to reduce the burden of work-related deaths, injuries and illnesses in agriculture. Dr. McNamara, Task Leader for Tasks 5 and 6 is the Vice Chair of SACURIMA. The network is working towards its goal by:

  • Evaluating health and safety programmes and approaches on the national level.
  • Identifying knowledge, attitudes, behaviours and priorities among farmers regarding safety, health and risk management.
  • Identifying effective measures for training and integrating vulnerable populations (including refugees) into the agricultural workforce.
  • Developing means and indicators for monitoring progress and evaluating the impact of interventions on injuries and illnesses in agriculture.
  • Disseminating results to stakeholders and the agricultural community.
