Protect your farm family from ATV injuries By Katherine Waters, U of M Extension Many Minnesota farmers use all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) to check on crops and livestock, inspect and repair irrigation systems and fence lines, supervise field crews, herd livestock, and to move things from here to there and back again. ATVs are useful on the farm, but a growing number of deaths and injuries resulting from accidents led the National Education Cen- ter for Agricultural Safety <www.> to focus on ATVs for this year's National Farm Safety and Health Week, Sept. 19-25. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPCS) reported that in recent years an estimated 25,500 individuals were treated for ATV-related injuries in hospi- tal emergency rooms. Four out of 10 people treated in emergency rooms for ATV injuries are under the age of 16. The exact number SPOg,T of injuries is not known because many ATV injuries are treated at home. The CPSC report also indicated that 6.4 percent of all ATV acci- dents occurred on the farm. This number is expected to grow as the ATV becomes a more common agricultural machine. Each year, about 800 deaths are associated with ATV acci- dents nationwide. In Minnesota, 248 deaths have been reported in the past 26 years, with 19 per- cent of the deaths reported in the past two years. Clearly, the num- ber of deaths per year associated with ATVs has increased in recent years. The machines are getting big- ger and faster, weighing 600 or more pounds, with speeds exceed- ing 70 miles per hour. Rollover accidents are the most common.
