Farms pose dangerous risks for teenagers, who are four times more likely to become injured on a farm than at any other workplace.
Researchers and scientists at the University of Iowa are conducting a study in order to determine the developmental skills of children in regards to operating farming machinery. They plan on using driving simulators to see when these teenagers are mentally ready to get behind the wheel of tractors.
The researchers hope that the results of this study will set guidelines for parents of children on farms in order to prevent tractor accident deaths. These types of accidental deaths are the leading cause of fatalities among children who work in the agricultural field.
