||A model for safety and health promotion among Danish farmers
||2003, Vol.9, No.1, p.93-100. Illus. 11 ref.
||This article describes an ongoing participatory project aimed at preventing accidents in the agricultural sector in a region of Denmark. The main principles were local involvement in designing the project, multifacetted activities for defined target-groups and the recognition of specific occupational skills. This multilevel approach involved groups and organizations including farmers, farmers' spouses, agricultural advisors, agricultural school teachers, employees and part-time farm workers. Activities included discussion meetings, information meetings in larger and smaller groups, and the designing of educational safety material. The project is a managed from "bottom-up" with a small budget and little centrally-organized activities. Evaluations are undertaken throughout the project period. If this concept can be implemented in Denmark, it may well be useful in other developed and developing countries.
