High-Risk Factors on Farms

Here are four of the primary high-risk factors for farm/agricultural work, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA):

  • Age - Injury rates among farm/agricultural workers are typically higher among those under 15 years of age or over 65.
  • Equipment/Machinery - The majority of accidents on farms involve equipment and/or machinery and employers are strongly encouraged to provide proper machine-guarding and preventive maintenance to reduce the risk of these accidents and resulting injuries and deaths.
  • Lack of protective equipment - Many older tractors, for example, lack proper Rollover Protection Structures (ROPS), which were not legally required in the U.S. until the mid-1970s.
  • Lack of medical care - Farms are typically situated in rural areas in which hospitals are relatively distant, and this can delay emergency medical care when it is desperately needed.
