Farm accidents might not be something your average person thinks about, but for families of farm workers, everyday on the job is cause for anxiety. Like working in an office or at a store, agricultural workers have the same right to safety and peace of mind while on the job. However, they may face exposure to incorrectly stored pesticides and chemicals, improper livestock handling, tractor rollovers, poorly maintained or defective machinery and equipment, and other unsafe working conditions. Furthermore, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, agriculture has the highest death rate among all occupations. These are real concerns.
