The purpose of this presentation is to examine severe injuries in various segments of the agricultural industries in Florida. Data from an OSHA database is used to investigate all severe injuries in the five years from 2015 to 2019. Results show there were 121 severe injuries during the five-year period. This is an ongoing data analysis. Data analysis will help us to see the trend and to understand the prevalent injury events and sources.
