Abstract
According to a brief review of the literature, agricultural mechanization has revolutionized farming but presents a problem in attainment of better injury control for agricultural workers and employees. A major need in agricultural safety is high quality data to identify actual injury problems. Acute injury associated with farm machines needs the application of epidemiological techniques. In-depth investigation of farm machinery accidents by specific categories is indicated. Trained professionals, in-depth investigators, can provide the factual background for implementation of appropriate counter-measures and more effective educational programs.
