No one deliberately has a tractor accident. Nevertheless, every year many farmers are killed or injured on, or because of, their tractors.
The causes of such accidents show that improper operation of the tractor or equipment accounts for the greatest percentage of accidents. Improper operation includes excessive speed, operating under the influence of alcohol and chasing cattle. Other accident causes are driving on too steep an incline and inexperience or immature drivers.
This extension circular contains safety hints on how to operate your farm equipment.
