The Canadian Department of Labour encounters, each year, thousands of farm work related injuries and up to hundreds of wrongful death farming accidents.

The machinery used in farming cause most accidents leading to injury:

  • Augers
  • Trailers
  • Tractors
  • Front End Loaders
  • Skid Steer Loaders
  • Hay Baler

In most incidents, victims encounter:

  • Being trapped by moving parts
  • Falling from or being run over by
  • Blunt force or crushing by heavy parts

These incidents often lead to head, neck and spinal cord injuries, along with lacerations,fractures, amputations, electrocutions, and wrongful death.

NO one should handle machinery and/or motor vehicles which they have not been trained/licensed to use.

Heavy duty machinery needs proper maintenance and employer control. It is the employer's duty to ensure safety and wellness in the workplace.
