Farm machinery, like power tools, contribute to the majority of injuries on the farm. Everybody on the farm needs to be safety conscious when dealing with machinery, but human negligence cases are rampant. How do you ensure that farmworkers recognize and understand these hazards?

Tractor and machine-related injuries are common but avoidable too. As you say, anybody who uses machinery needs to be safety conscious. It is needless to take shortcuts, ignore warnings, or fail to follow safety rules.

New workers on the farm may (at first) not appreciate the need to be safety conscious. They should all get trained on general safety procedures and the consequences of not following safety rules. Once this becomes the norm, then a safety-conscious culture spreads through the farm.
