Large Machinery-Related Agricultural Injuries Across a Five-State Region in the Midwest
Objective: High agricultural injury related mortality and morbidity rates persist. This study addressed a knowledge gap regarding large machinery-related injury magnitude, consequences, and risk factors. Methods: From randomly selected Midwestern agricultural operations in 1999 and 2001, 7420 eligible households participated. Demographic, exposure, and injury data collected for four 6-month periods used a computer-assisted telephone interview. An a priori causal model enabled survey development, data analysis, and interpretation. Directed acyclic graphs, developed from this model, facilitated potential...
Occupational accidents with agricultural machinery in Austria
The number of recognized accidents with fatalities during agricultural and forestry work, despite of better technology and coordinated prevention and trainings, is still very high in Austria. The accident scenarios in which people are injured are very different on farms. The common causes of accidents in agriculture and forestry are the loss of control of machine, means of transport or handling equipment, hand-held tool, object or animal, followed by slipping, stumbling and falling, breakage, bursting, splitting, slipping, fall, collapse of material agent. In the literature, a numerous number on...
Occupational accidents with mowing machines in Austrian agriculture
The number of recognized accidents during agricultural work is still very high in Austria. In the years 2008 to 2009, there occurred 84 approved work accidents with mowing machines. The main causes of accidents were the loss of control of machines, transportations or conveyances, hand tools, objects or animals. In the literature, numerous studies of general agricultural and forestry accident situations are available. Detailed studies on specific types of agricultural machines, which describe concrete circumstances and causes of accidents, are in limited numbers. The accident database from the General...
Best Practice Guidelines for the Safe Use of Elevating Work Platforms in the Horticultural Industry
Horticultural mobile elevating work platforms (H/MEWP) are complex pieces of equipment that are used in hazardous conditions. As the current state of knowledge has changed around the use of this equipment these best practice guidelines are an update of the 2003 version. Since 2004, 17 serious harm accidents involving H/MEWPs have been reported to MBIE. Nine of these accidents involved tip-overs of the H/MEWP and two serious harm injuries occurred when operators fell from the work platform. In two separate accidents the operator suffered an electric shock when the H/MEWP touched power lines. In...
Reducing occupational fatalities by using NIOSH 3rd generation automatically deployable rollover protective structure
Each year tractor rollovers cause injuries or deaths for farmers despite the fact that an effective safeguard was available in the form of a rollover protective structure (ROPS); however, many ROPS were removed by the tractor's owners, because the ROPS is too tall to allow tractors to enter farm fields because it may damage produce located on low hanging tree branches while working in an orchard, and the loss of crops means loss of money for farmers. The NIOSH AutoROPS will provide the same level of protection as the conventional ROPS, but instead of having the post as one solid part as with...
Health and safety in sawmilling
Although standards of health and safety are much improved over recent years, sawmilling remains a high-risk industry. This revised guidance comprehensively updates and expands the original Health and safety in sawmilling published in 1997. It takes into account the higher levels of automation introduced into the industry, with the attendant increase in injuries caused by operator interventions. The guidance was produced in close consultation with the industry and represents current good practice. Source :
Research into the effectiveness of safety bar devices fitted to satellite arm bale wrapping machines-RR846
This work identified a wide range of satellite arm bale wrappers available within the UK. Testing of these wrappers indicated that, as supplied, a large proportion of these wrappers have safety bar devices that do not perform in the manner desired. This is because in many cases, following the triggering of the safety bar, the rotating dispenser arms were not brought to an abrupt enough stop. This resulted in the dispenser arms passing the point at which the safety bar had been triggered, hence introducing the possibility of the dispenser arm striking whatever/whoever had triggered the safety bar...
Guidelines for safe working near overhead electricity lines in Agriculture
Overhead power lines on Irish farms pose a serious risk to farmers, contractors and anyone in the vicinity of high machinery passing close to these lines. Several people have been killed and many more injured as a result of making contact, or near contact, with overhead electricity lines during agricultural work. Machinery (such as forage harvesters, combine harvesters and tipping trailers), equipment (such as ladders) and activities (such as stacking) are often involved. Many ‘near misses' also arise that are not reported and where no one is injured. Source :
Cranes in Arboriculture
Towards an Industry Standard This article by David Robinson Tech Cert (Arbor.A), Anderson Tree Care Ltd was originally published in the Arboricultural Association Newsletter issue 145. The author is inviting feedback from members of the industry, who use mobile cranes for tree work. The intention is to encourage people to think about the issues associated with this type of work and to collate information that will be valuable drafting industry guidance on this topic. Source :

The Agricultural Trailer Braking Study
A study was conducted to quantify the service and parking brake performance of a small but representative range of agricultural trailers and trailed appliances in front-line service on UK farms to highlight possible inadequacies in trailer braking system specification and maintenance levels, particularly when used with faster (above 20 mph) tractors.
L'ETUI lance un nouveau projet pour améliorer la sécurité du matériel agricole
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...
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.
