Statement of the Problem. The study was concerned with answering three basic questions.
Method of Research. Using the procedures of the Standardized Farm Accident Reporting Program, a stratified random sample of farms grouped in clusters in 19 counties of Minnesota were surveyed four times during 1978 by volunteer interviewers. The survey in each county was coordinated by the county extension staff with the training of the interviewers done by the state staff.
Findings. There was a significant difference in the distribution of work injuries between those of the 1978 Minnesota Accident Survey and the "national norm" as compiled by the National Safety Council in respect to:
No significant difference was found in respect to severity of injury. It was found that the majority of farm tractor and machinery operators in Minnesota did not participate in vocational agriculture, the 4-H power program and the Tractor and Machinery Safety Training Program. Amount of experience and vocational agriculture completed were found to be slightly associated with accident involvement.
