Working in agriculture is dangerous: Here's what to know

Working in agriculture, there are a few things that you should be aware of. You are exposed to many kinds of hazards each day, which means that good training is essential. Your employer is responsible for providing training and information on the hazards that you may be exposed to in the workplace.

Workplace injuries are not always immediately apparent

If you work in a California industry that is known to be dangerous, such as construction, agriculture or commercial fishing, you are at risk for injury on the job. However, even if you work behind a desk in an office, it does not necessarily mean you will never suffer workplace injuries. In fact, many workers suffer debilitating pain that prevents them from returning to work because of issues such as repetitive strain injury (RSI). 

Construction workers' accidents often cuased by these issues

Every California worker is at risk for injury on the job. Some jobs are undoubtedly more dangerous than others. Construction workers' accidents typically occur more often than accidents in most other industries. In fact, construction ranks high on most lists for the most dangerous jobs in the United States.
