Childhood farm injuries and fatalities most often occur while children are playing in an agricultural worksite, or are bystanders to agricultural work. Children younger than 10 years old experience one of the highest rates of pediatric farm-related injury, according to a study by the National
Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.

Ideally, non-working children should be physically separated from the occupational and environmental hazards associated with agricultural worksites. Safe play areas are an alternative to bringing children into the worksite, especially when off-farm childcare is not available.

Creating Safe Play Areas on Farms provides the first comprehensive guide for designing and building an outdoor safe play area on a farm. It was developed for safety professionals, farm and rural community leaders, and farm owners who want to understand important features of safe play areas for children who live on or visit farms.
