No matter if you have lived on a farm your entire life or have recently moved to the country, farming implements are very dangerous and deadly if misused. In order to prevent accidents, The Farm Safety Handbook covers the basics of farm safety, including what not to do around the implement, the proper way to use the implement, what can happen if you misuse the implement, and what to do if an accident happens.
Child safety around the farm, how to deal with natural gases that occur on the farm, and how to safely work with animals are also included in this book. Case reports from various states detail accidents that have happened on farms to illustrate the results of inexperience and carelessness. Survivors of farm accidents also share their stories and explain how their lives have been altered. Many accidents can be prevented, and The Farm Safety Handbook can reduce your risk—as well as the risk to others—of accidents and injury.
