Industry Targets > AGRICULTURE
The agriculture sector, and farming activities specifically, ranks among the nation’s most hazardous environments where injuries occur almost daily. The industry is also among the largest in the U.S. in terms of the number of Workers’ Compensation claims it receives annually. Injuries are as a result of vehicular hazards (tractor rollovers, farm tractor accidents); heat exposure; falls; physical hazards such as manual labor and heavy lifting; working with equipment such as knives, hoes and power tools; and exposure to chemicals and pesticides.
In addition to the risks inherent in the work performed in the agriculture sector, the cost of agriculture Workers’ Compensation coverage is also impacted by the number of seasonal employees who are employed for short periods. It’s important to note that in many states seasonal workers are excluded unless the business purchases a rider or endorsement adding coverage for these employees. In addition, in some states coverage is limited to full-time workers, those employed in specialty jobs, those employed on larger farms and/or limited to the number of work hours, man-hours, number of full-time versus part-time workers, and the like.*
