Abstract
A 51-year old farm worker died on March 9, 2001 from injuries received when he was run over by the farm tractor he was operating. FACE investigators concluded that to prevent similar occurrences, employers should: 1. Maintain tractors and similar farm equipment in safe operating condition, including any original safety-related features and any retrofits designed and recommended by equipment manufacturers. 2. Familiarize themselves and their employees with farm safety documents and training and follow safe operating procedures in the operation of tractors and other farm equipment. 3. Periodically monitor and evaluate employee conformance with safe operating procedures and provide re-training and corrective action as necessary when the procedures are not followed.
