Improving Farm Safety
personal injury lawyers

Improved safety on any farm can begin by increasing your awareness of farming hazards and making an effort to prepare for a variety of emergency situations, such as fires, electrical shocks, vehicle accidents, chemical exposure, and machinery accidents. You can minimize hazards and prevent accidents by carefully choosing and maintaining the products and machinery you buy for the farm.

Other steps you should take to reduce the risk of accidents or injury on the farm include:

  • Installing retrofit roll-over protective structures (ROPS) on any tractor made before 1985.
  • Inspecting your equipment and machinery regularly for any problems.
  • Replacing all guards on farm equipment after any maintenance.
  • Following all instructions in equipment operator manuals and on product labels.
  • Making use of other available safety equipment, such as slow-moving vehicle emblems, power shields, equipment guards, etc.

For more information about farm safety, visit the web sites of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the National Ag Safety Database.
