Agriculture is considered the most dangerous industry for young workers, accounting for 42% of all work-related fatalities of young workers in the US between 1992 and 2000. Unlike other industries, half the young victims in agriculture were under age 15 [NIOSH 2003]. For young agricultural workers aged 1517, the risk of fatal injury is four times the risk for young workers in other workplaces [BLS 2000]. Agricultural work exposes young workers to safety hazards such as machinery, confined spaces, work at elevations, and work around livestock. Young workers may also be exposed to agricultural chemicals (e.g., pesticides, fertilizers), noise, respiratory irritants, and toxic gases (see Appendix A) [NRC/IOM 1998; Kirkhorn and Garry 2000]
