Using direct input from horse farm employees, managers, and owners, a group of researchers based at the University of Kentucky (UK) College of Public Health and the University of Maryland (UM), Baltimore, has developed a set of bilingual safety training materials designed to equip horse farm managers and workers with information needed to stay safe on the job.

The Thoroughbred Worker Health and Safety Study was a five-year research project aimed to improve the occupational safety and health of Thoroughbred farm workers.

The project was funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health /Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as part of the University of Kentucky Southeast Center for Agricultural Health and Injury Prevention
