Abstract
Farming is one of the most hazardous industries in the United States. In 2008, 456 farmers and farm workers died due to farm-related injuries. From 1998 to 2008, 195 people were killed in farming-related incidents in Oklahoma. Farming related deaths accounted for 16% of all work-related deaths in Oklahoma during this time. More than half of all farm-related deaths involved a tractor, and 20% involved a tractor rollover. Nearly all (95%) deaths occurred among males. The age of workers killed ranged from 16 to 91. Injuries were most common in the months of May and July. More than half of all fatal injuries occurred between 10:00 AM and 8:00 PM, and most often from 3:00-4:00 PM.
