Abstract:
This report focuses on farm machinery injury. The work reported here identifies individual and machine characteristics that are associated with an increased risk of a serious farm work related injury. A comprehensive analysis of a series of farm machinery events is reported, and through the application of a human factors and systems approach, recommendations are made in relation to improving machinery design to reduce the potential for injury events to occur, and to reduce the severity of resulting injury when such events do occur.
