Background Agriculture, forestry, fishing and hunting industry is the most hazardous occupational sector in the USA. Even with this level of occupational risk, several national and state-level occupational injury surveillance programmes have been eliminated, leaving regional efforts to analyse multiple sources and compile data on agricultural injuries and fatalities. No up-to-date centralised national database for agricultural injuries/fatalities in the USA currently exists. Objective Using the… Expand
Establishing a publicly available national database of US news articles reporting agriculture‐related injuries and fatalities
TLDR
The AgInjuryNews system and dataset combines injury reports into one dataset and may be the most current and comprehensive publicly available collection of news reports on agricultural injuries and deaths. Expand
Agricultural Youth Injuries: A Review of 2015-2017 Cases from U.S. News Media Reports
TLDR
It is reaffirmed that youth agricultural-related injuries and fatalities are still a persistent problem in the United States and the hypothesis generating AgInjuryNews system can provide more current data than traditional surveillance datasets as a tool for understanding the sources of youth agricultural injuries, monitoring injury trends, and informing policy efforts and prevention strategies. Expand
Redesigning a Sentinel Surveillance System for Collecting and Disseminating Near Real-Time Agricultural Injury Reports: System Usability Study
TLDR
The study aimed to develop a stakeholder-engaged redesign of the interactive, up-to-date, and publicly available dataset of US AFF injury and fatality reports, which includes fatal and nonfatal injury cases derived from publicly available reports, occurring in the agricultural, forestry, and fishing industry. Expand
Assessing the Emergent Public Health Concern of All-Terrain Vehicle Injuries in Rural and Agricultural Environments: Initial Review of Available National Datasets in the United States
TLDR
Several national United States–based injury datasets are examined, including the web-based AgInjuryNews, the Fatality Analysis Reporting System, databases compiled by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, and the National Fatality Review Case Reporting System. Expand
Grower Perceptions of Safety Hazards and Associated Injuries among Farmworkers Involved in Northwest Potato Production
TLDR
educational materials were developed to assist growers in identifying and mitigating safety hazards on their own establishments and future research is needed to evaluate the utility of these tools on reducing potential hazards and injury rates among workers in the Northwest potato industry. Expand
A Review of 2016–2017 Agricultural Youth Injuries Involving Skid Steers and a Call for Intervention and Translational Research
TLDR
An overrepresentation of youth being involved in skid steer incidents from 2016 to 2017 raises concerns over parental attitudes and beliefs about the safety of these machines, and there appears to be a significant gap between safety knowledge and practice. Expand
Using multiple coding schemes for classification and coding of agricultural injury
TLDR
This paper demonstrates how the Farm and Agricultural Injury Classification (FAIC) and Occupational Injury and Illness Classification System (OIICS) coding schemes can be used in tandem for all agricultural injuries. Expand
Agricultural Work-Related Fatalities to Non-Working Youth: Implications for Intervention Development.
TLDR
It is concluded that fatal injuries to non-working children on farms are preventable and safety professionals and community members may help prevent these fatalities. Expand
Hazard Control Methods to Improve Agricultural All-Terrain Vehicle Safety.
TLDR
A comprehensive review was conducted to evaluate the current injury burden of ATV use in agriculture, the need for future research, and possible solutions related to agricultural ATV safety. Expand

Improving agricultural injury surveillance: a comparison of incidence and type of injury event among three data sources.
TLDR
Ambulance reports and hospital data contribute a large number of additional farm injury cases to existing surveillance data, and horse injuries, falls, and hand tool injuries appear to play a larger role in farm injuries. Expand
Costs of Occupational Injuries in Agriculture
TLDR
The costs of farm injuries are on a par with the costs of hepatitis C, and an underappreciated contributor to the overall national burden of health and medical costs. Expand
News Reports and Their Role in Child Agricultural Injury Prevention
TLDR
This study shows that news reports provide a valuable and relatively inexpensive addition to other childhood agricultural injury data sources and have potential to be an effective communication tool with respect to education, prevention, and framing the public’s perception of injury risk. Expand

TLDR
This research project compared data obtained through a newly developed FAIC follow-up questionnaire (FQ) with data from the Penn State Agricultural Injury Database (AID) to test FAIC Code utility, reliability, and construct validity with agricultural safety and health professionals. Expand
Summation of the frequency, severity, and primary causative factors associated with injuries and fatalities involving confined spaces in agriculture.
TLDR
A project was undertaken to estimate the frequency, severity, and primary causative factors associated with injuries and fatalities involving confined spaces in agriculture, including grain bins, silos, and manure storage and handling facilities, including children under the age of 16. Expand
What we are not talking about: an evaluation of prevention messaging in print media reporting on agricultural injuries and fatalities.
TLDR
Print media reporting of agricultural injury and fatality represents a missed opportunity to provide a prevention message and more can be done to improve linkages between news media outlets and injury prevention specialists to improve prevention content in newsprint. Expand
