The farming industry is filled with hard-working and dedicated individuals. While there are different types of farming, such as dairy farming for example, the level of work involved with each of them is quite significant. Long days and many different duties are experienced by those who work in these environments.
Farming industry injuries are rare but they are more likely to occur in this environment than they do in other industries. This is because there is a range of potential hazards that are present in this industry.
For example farmers and their assistants may have to work with numerous animals, with machinery and in various types of weather. All these elements may have their own effects and could result in farming industry injuries occurring.
Are such farming industry injuries that common?
While this is one of the leading industries for the number of accidents occurring each year, along with the building and construction industry, the actual number of incidents that occur is usually still quite small.
However there is the potential for accidents or fatalities to happen if the proper health and safety elements and procedures are not followed.
