Notes
  • The aim of the study was to test a model for safety education of farmer-loggers. The project was prompted by the high rate of fatal accidents and severe injuries among farmer-loggers and the difficulty in recruiting them to ordinary safety courses. The courses were planned and organised by representatives of the agricultural and forestry organizations, the Local Safety Inspectorate and the public health services. The participants were recruited locally in each district. One trial group and one control group were randomly selected and compared for six variables. The courses were held close to the participants' farms. The majority had little or no previous education in occupational safety. The courses contributed to an increased safety consciousness and the participants reported improved methods of working. The most important factors for the result were the location of the courses, the recruitment procedure and realistic exercises with demonstrations on major risks.
