Farm Injuries: How Can The Family Farm Be Made A Safer Place?

  • Sterner, Steve


Life on a working farm is not all pastoral serenity. Fatigue, time pressures, and malfunctioning equipment plague farmers during planting and harvest seasons and are often factors in accidents. Children usually help with the farm work and care of animals and often play near hazardous equipment, so they may be involved in accidents with machinery or livestock. Dr. Sterner describes typical farm injuries and some methods that may help in prevention.
