As long as agriculture underpins the survival of humanity, safety
remains a relevant issue to life security in and around the farm
community for system sustainability. An understanding of the issues
and values of hazard and safety in machinery operations will aid in
decision-making reinforced by principles and practice. The
diversity and complexity of agricultural and related machinery have
become an index for increased rate of accident and injury
occurrence experienced during operations and maintenance.
Therefore, the study of machinery hazards, hazard sources and
points in machinery and subsequent safe practices will help to
eliminate, eradicate or control such hazards and provide workers
with the opportunity to operate machinery more safely and develop
skills in improved material and machine handling, as well as
facilitate effective utilization of signal communication techniques
and the attainment of relevant knowledge in accident prevention in
primary production processes. One fundamental and pertinent
question one should ask therefore is 'how safe is your farm?'
Response to this question is salient but essential for safe-farm
machinery operation (SMO) and increased productivity and reduced
downtime due to accident incidences and accident compensation
claims. Such measures were presented in this book as you take a
journey through it.
