Agricultural worksites are never safe for children younger than 10 years. Even with adult supervision children are at risk of injuries and death.
THE FACTS • Children under 10 years of age account for 26% of all childhood farm injuries. • In nearly all cases, children are being supervised at the time of injury. • The majority of these injuries are the result of children being bystanders (in the farm worksite but not actively working) to farm work. • No environment can be made hazard free, especially an active worksite.
