The Tractor as a Work-place: A Preliminary Report on a Survey Among Norwegian Farmers and Tractor Drivers

  • Sjoflot, L.


The results of a national survey of Norwegian farmers are given. The survey was undertaken because of the lack of information on the farmers' own opinions of tractors, tractor operation and working environment; of the age, condition and time in use of tractors and different equipment; of the farmer's and tractor driver's health conditions and their opinions on recent ergonomics developments. The survey results provide the basis for deciding future research and development and also to assign priorities.
