Through implementation of safer work practices and measures however, these numbers could be greatly reduced. Education and training is a major element that can assist this.

    This bears out something I have suspected for a long time. Safe working practices in the US are much worse than in the UK. This post states that the rate of fatal accidents in US agriculture is 20 per 100,000 workers. In the UK the rate is 8.8 per 100,000 workers. And in the UK, agriculture is classed as having the worst safety record of any industry.
