Welcome to the GPCAH website

Our mission is to prevent agricultural injury and illness and improve safety and health among agricultural communities.

Rollover protection a critical strategy for small farms

Operating a farm safely is a big job, no matter the number of acres. If you happen to run
a farm that uses mostly volunteer labor and is located on public land, safety
considerations become even more critical.
