Texas Gin Accident Survey Results

J. Kelley Green


Four ginning seasons of accident data have been collected by Texas Cotton Ginners' Association Field Safety personnel. Analysis of the data indicates several areas where increased efforts should yield a significant reduction in accident rates. These areas are worker training; implementation and enforcement of lock-out/tag-out programs; utilization of proper tools, personal protective equipment and work practices; and improved housekeeping.
