Given the significant under-reporting of accidents in agriculture across Europe, national reporting still places the sector among the leading sectors in terms of risk. According to Eurostat data, over 500 deaths and more than 150000 injuries per year have been registered on average in the last decade.
The main goal of this paper is to examine the causes of accidents and working conditions among this population, as well as to perceive the priorities for safe work in this still labor-intensive branch, where self-employed farmers are exposed to numerous risks that make their work unsafe. The analyzes were done through a survey that included 120 respondents: owners, family members and workers. The largest number of workers, 63.3%, are men, 35.1% belong to the age group of 46-60 years, and 33.8% of the surveyed farmers have only primary education.
Of particular concern is the fact that 43.5% belonged to the category of family members, which gives the answer to why accidents where children are victims occur very often.
