The prevailing demographic change in the western world means that the
workforce is becoming older. Farmers in particular often work beyond the normal
retirement age, in a challenging physical environment. For example, the agricultural
sector has the most hazardous work environment in Sweden. Therefore, it is interesting
to examine the following questions: Are senior farmers more frequently involved
in work-related injuries? Do some injuries happen more often in the oldest age
group? Which part of the body is most frequently affected in different age groups?
What can be done to decrease the risk of injury in senior farmers
