Abstract:
Agriculture is a hazardous industry, with a high frequency of injuries. As agriculture is an industry mostlyconsisting of small enterprises, it may be difficult to prevent injuries. In Norway, an OHS course is available forfarmers. This study aims to evaluate this course. The evaluation is a prospective exploratory case study eva-luation using qualitative interviews. The results suggest that there was not an increase in use and understandingof OHS systems, despite being the aim of the course. The farmers easily absorbed the practical part of the course,getting solutions and ideas for practical risk prevention at own farm.
