Excerpt
Background: Injury represents an important health and economic problem in the agricultural industry. Although an important body of research has accumulated for injury among farmers and agricultural workers in other areas of the U.S., few data are available for migrant farm workers. There are approximately 3 million migrant and seasonal farm workers and dependents in the U.S., and estimates of the population in California range from 600,000 to 1.2 million. Farm workers tend to belong to ethnic and linguistic minorities. The predominant ethnic group is Hispanic, and in California this group constitutes approximately 90% of migrant and seasonal farm workers. Farm workers may be at increased risk for injury because they are most immediately involved in production tasks. Hazards include animals, machinery, chemicals, and dangerous environmental conditions. Contributing factors in this population include low educational status, poor English and literacy skills, and inadequate understanding of existing reporting and support structures such as Workers’ Compensation.
