Food and agriculture global value chains: Drivers and constraints for occupational safety and health improvement
The project aimed to gather evidence on ways to approach OSH within the global supply chains (GSC) discussion and possible entry points to build intervention models for the improvement of OSH in GSCs. From that perspective, the project sought to understand the dynamics at play in GSCs with a view to identifying drivers and constraints for OSH improvements, should these lie within specific business relationships in the supply chain or within institutional and policy environments in sourcing and consumer countries.

Risk Factors for Agricultural Injury: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
The objective of this study was to identify significant risk factors for agricultural injury based on the literature. The authors conducted a systematic review of commonly reported risk factors. Studies that reported adjusted odds ratio (OR) or relative risk (RR) estimates for the selected risk factors were identified from PubMed and Google Scholar. Pooled risk factor estimates were calculated using meta-analysis. A total of 441 (PubMed) and 285 (Google Scholar) studies were found in the initial searches; of these, 132 and 78 studies, respectively, met the selection criteria for injury outcomes...
Agricultural Media Coverage of Farm Safety
Review of the Literature Agricultural media merit increased attention in addressing dynamic changes in safety aspects of one of the nation's most hazardous industries. Changes in farming, such as larger scale, new “niche” enterprises and new technologies, bring new forms of risk to the safety of those who live and work on farms and ranches. At the same time, traditional agricultural media – commercial firms that publish farm periodicals and commercial radio/television stations and networks that provide farm programming - are changing dramatically. In the face of media convergence...

Le risque est dans le pré
Souvent, ils ont choisi ce métier d'agriculteur parce qu'ils aiment la nature, qu'ils sont épris de liberté et de vie au grand air. Et puis, quoi de plus noble que de nourrir la terre et les hommes ?

Injuries in the commercial fishing fleet of Norway 2000–2011
A working fishing vessel at sea is an elaborate collection of interacting accident potentials, barely controlled. Even the deck underfoot betrays the unwary, as can every other aspect of the normal daily grind onboard, as fishers ply their trade in weather foul and fair. All elements of the vessel at sea conspire in making this the most dangerous and difficult of all professional callings, an inexplicable calling where life and limb are continually at risk. This article is based on an examination of reported occupational injuries from the Norwegian fishing fleet from 2000 to 2011. The aim is the...
