Abstract The study presents results of an analysis of farm and ranch work injury data collected in 35 state farm accident surveys which were performed using the National Safety Council's standardized forms and procedures. A total of 37,293 farms participated in these surveys and information was recorded on 4,105 work-related injuries. Data were summarized regarding the farm, the injured person, the injury event, environmental conditions, location, activity and action of person involved, costs, time lost, and rehabilitation needs. Emphasis in the study was given to constructing common injury scenarios identified from the type of accident, nature of injury, part of body, agency of accident, and activity. The scenarios were then examined to identify possible intervention techniques. Multi-dimensional crosstabulations were used for most of the analysis. Exposure data were used to compute injury frequency rates by age, sex, and employment status. An extensive literature review was used to summarize previous farm accident research, and results from the current study were compared to those previously published.
