Abstract
A 73-year old farmer died on May 2, 2001 from injuries received when he was crushed within a hay baler. OKFACE investigators concluded that to prevent similar occurrences, employers should: 1. Maintain tractors and similar farm equipment in safe operating condition and follow manufacturer recommendations when using, maintaining, and servicing powered equipment. 2. Familiarize themselves and their employees with farm safety documents and training materials.
