Whereas the Western Area Laboratory for Occupational Safety and Health (WALOSH) was established at Salt Lake City to, in part, conduct research into agricultural occupational safety and health problems;

Whereas this laboratory is being closed in the near future;

Whereas no official statement has been issued which specifically identifies how the agricultural safety and health research is to be continued;

Be it therefore resolved…

…that the National Institute for Farm Safety, Inc., requests that the Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare issue such a statement and provide assurance that research efforts begun in this area will be continued and/or expanded with specific visibility given to agricultural safety and health problems as a unique area.
