Abstract
Fifty-nine percent of principal farm operators in Kentucky work at jobs off the farm. These job settings can be a conduit for dissemination of health education and injury prevention messages. The Community Partners for Healthy Farming Project initialed a tractor Roll Over Protective Structure (ROPS) promotion campaign and through employers disseminated materials on the risks of tractor over turns and benefits of ROPS. Eight businesses participated in this effort. A case report describes one employer's activities in detail.
