Abstract

An IDPH Occupational Health and Safety Surveillance Program (OHSSP) analysis of Iowa’s work-related traumatic fatalities shows that transportation events accounted for 48 of 90 deaths in 2011. Agricultural activities were involved in 21 of the 48 transportation deaths (44%) and 32 of the 90 total fatalities (36%). Tractor and ATV (all-terrain vehicle) or UTV (utility vehicle) rollovers were responsible for 62% (13/21) of the farm or ag-related transportation deaths.
