||Rates of fatal occupational injuries in New York State agriculture far outstrip the average for all American workers. The New York Center for Agricultural Medicine and Health sponsored a safety programme to reduce farm worksite hazards and to enhance understanding of safe farm practices. A survey of 124 farms identified hazards that may lead to farm injury and suggested improvements to correct those hazards. Safety training sessions were conducted in 271 farms to increase safety knowledge and influence adoption of safe work practices. During follow-up phone surveys conducted with 97 of the participating farms, 77 (79%) reported having made safety improvements. Other findings are discussed.
