Again and again farming tops the list of the most dangerous occupations. And with so many hobby farms springing up, new generations of farmers taking over, and new and complicated machinery arriving on the farm, the work just gets more dangerous. This book is dedicated to keeping farmers safe - to preventing the accidents that beset agriculture by teaching proper farm practices, providing safe rules for operating equipment, and alerting farmers to potential dangers. Farm safety expert, Rick Kubik tells readers how to handle implements, what not to do around them, and what to do if an accident occurs. The detailed and comprehensive information in this book, clearly illustrated throughout, is further brought home through harrowing accounts of real-life farm accidents.
