Abstract
The lifestyles of employees affect their work and their health. Occupational health nurses need to know as much as possible about employees to render the best care possible. Production agriculture is a risky business performed by many employees. By understanding the risks involved, occupational health nurses can optimize the health of workers in the off farm and on farm contexts of their lives. Managers and supervisors need to realize that investment in farm health and safety can yield financial benefits in terms of decreasing lost workdays caused by injury and illness and increased morale through public recognition of the importance of agricultural production.
