Occupational Electrical Injury and Fatality Trends: 1992-2007

Les machines sont un facteur essentiel à l'amélioration de la productivité du secteur agricole. Elles représentent cependant un danger permanent pour les gens qui les utilisent et tous ceux qui se trouvent à proximité, à cause de la vaste gamme de dangers mécaniques associés à leur utilisation. Les moissonneuses-batteuses et les machines agricoles utilisées pour la récolte des céréales, pour ne citer que deux exemples connus, présentent un risque important pour l'utilisateur d'un membre happé ou coincé lors de l'intervention sur une machine en marche.


Electrical safety gets a boost

Agriculture power take-offs and power take-off shaft drives leaflet updated

A tractor power take-off (PTO) and the power take-off drive shaft of a machine are very dangerous if used and not correctly guarded. Every year people are killed or seriously injured in accidents involving PTOs and PTO drive shafts. Most of these accidents are preventable if the PTO and PTO drive shaft are fitted with guards of good design which are properly used and maintained.
