About Us

The Cultivate Safety website was produced by the National Children’s Center for Rural and Agricultural Health and Safety (NCCRAHS). This center is one of ten centers funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, and the only center that is both national and focused solely on children. The mission of NCCRAHS is to, “enhance the health and safety of all children exposed to hazards associated with agricultural work and rural environments.”
