Hazardous Equipment and Machinery

Farmworkers use a wide range of equipment, from ladders and machinery to cutting tools such as hoes, knives, and sickles. Safety precautions are essential when working with these tools because improper use, as well as lack of maintenance, can create risks of severe injury or even death.

Here are some general safety tips for hazardous equipment and machinery:

  • All power tools should be properly grounded and/or double-insulated, and with all necessary guards or shields.
  • Generally, all tools should always be kept in good condition and all manufacturers' instructions should be followed closely.
  • Shop areas should be well-lit with clear walkways to avoid slip-and-fall injuries.
  • Farmworkers should always wear appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and ensure that their clothing has no loose ends that may be caught in machinery; the same goes for long hair, which should be tied back whenever possible.
