FARM ACCIDENTS CAN BE PREVENTED
During the year 1943, approximately 17,200 farm people were
dents, most of which could have been prevented. Two-fifths of the
deaths or 7,500 occurred in the farm home; 4,500 while doing farm
From motor vehicle accidents. The number of farm people ki
working was the highest of six major industries and amounted to
of all occupational deaths in the United States. Principal causes ofJ
accidents are machinery, livestock, and falls.
While the thousands of farm people killed by accidents each ye
serious effect on o'ur national farm economy, even more serious is t
toll of manpower taken each year by the million and a half farm

they never again will be capable of performing useful work or of t
of themselves. Others have only been disabled for several days, hi
few days are lost at harvest time or during other busy periods, they

In addition to deaths and bodily injuries, farm fires also take a t
slice out of the farmer's pocketbook each year. At least $100,000,000
farm property is destroyed annually by fires, not to mention the fac
farmers ever completely recover from the financial shock caused by a
ing fire. Fires result from accidents just as much as the crushed bo
found under the overturned tractor, because soldom does DL fire t
charged as "an act of God." Usually there is some human failu o
such as the wet hay in the barn, the faulty lightning rod, or the
carelessly thrown near the ripe grain, hay, or gasoline.
Most farm accidents are prevented It is not necessary that each
50 farm people meet an untimely death or that the toll continue wh
first 2 years of American participation in the war resulted in more
farm deaths than the number of fighting men killed in the war Itself.
Farm accident prevention can be broken down into three st : (1)
recognize the hazards. (2) correct those linzards that canbe

To aid in recognizing, correcting, and living with most farm acddel
