Abstract

Many farm safety educators believe that farm accident prevention begins with the development of good safety attitudes. The relationship of safety attitudes and farm accident involvement has not been specifically researched. There is some evidence that safety attitude development has been given too high a priority in farm accident prevention. To determine the relationship of the attitudes a farmer has toward farm safety with his accident involvement, a statewide, random survey of Pennsylvania male farmers was conducted. The survey consisted of a two-part questionnaire. The first part requested information pertaining to acres farmed, education, hours worked, labor force, number of accidents, and type of farm. The second part utilized the Semantic Differential Attitude Test to measure the farmers' attitudes toward selected farm safety concepts. Results of the survey are discussed.
