||Fatal work-related injuries in the agricultural production and services sectors among youth in the United States, 1992-96
||1999, Vol.6, No.3, p.27-41. 42 ref.
||Data from the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries conducted by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics were used to analyse fatal agricultural work injuries among youth less than 20 years of age from 1992-1996. There were 188 deaths, 23% of which were tractor-related. Eighty-three deaths (44.1%) were reported among individuals engaged in family businesses. The fatality rate for 15- to 19-year-olds was 12.2 deaths per 100,000 full-time equivalents. Youth fatality rates were similar to those of adult workers until the age group of 45-54 years. Non-regulatory approaches to preventing injuries, especially in family businesses, are important given the current form of U.S. child labour laws.
