Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to investigate the incidence, frequency and severity of accidents in Arizona secondary agricultural education programs. Data were obtained by questionnaires sent to secondary school teachers of agricultural education in Arizona from February 2, 1991, to April 15, 1991. Among the teachers who reported one or more accidents, a pattern of accidents was observed over the period (1989-90 school year) studied. Cuts and burns were the most frequent accidents in the programs, followed by bruises and scratches. Incidents such as loss of hammer head and disintegration of grinder wheel pose great danger and, therefore, require the attention of teachers and administrators as well. It is hoped agricultural education teachers and students, through this study and others similar to it, will be able to gain insight into the patterns of accidents occurring in their labs and, most of all, stress adherence to safety guidelines.
