NYCAMH Celebrates 25 Years of Farm Safety Services



The New York Center for Agricultural Medicine & Health (NYCAMH) will be celebrating 25 years of farm safety programs with its new NYCAMH To Go mobile unit.

To meet the needs of busy farmers, NYCAMH now offers a mobile version of its farm safety services. NYCAMH To Go is a mobile health van staffed by health and safety professionals. It combines basic hearing, blood pressure, glucose, vision and other preliminary health screenings with NYCAMH occupational health programs.

The NYCAMH To Go van is also equipped to provide respiratory fit testing and direct sales of personal protective equipment (PPE) and power takeoff (PTO) shields.

Other safety and health activities at Empire Farm Days include:
