According to the US census, 1.1 million children less than 14 years of age live on farms.! Historically, these children and adolescents have contributed to farm labor in the United States. Among the hazards facing these children are tractors and other machinery, bodies of water, farm animals, agricultural chemicals, confined spaces, flowing grain, and electricity. This figure may be low since it excludes children who work but do not live on farms. Farm work injury rates for children under age 14 are 18 per 1,000 children at risk.
