Farming can be a dangerous occupation.  According to the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), there are 600 farm-related fatalities and 200,000 farm-related injuries in the United States annually. 

Children are at special risk from farm-related accidents.  Many of the more than 100 annual deaths among those 20 and younger on farms result from being innocent bystanders or passengers on farm equipment.

Most of the deaths and injuries could have been preventable by practicing proper safety procedures while using equipment and working on the farm.

Here are some helpful links to websites and publications to assist farmers in increasing safety on their farms.
