Farm Safety: Tractors and Trains Rarely Mix
My best guess is that Tyson Petersen, 22 is feeling like today or anytime soon may be the day for him to play the Iowa Lottery. Seems Mr. Petersen knows something about concentrating and owning his job. He’s a farmer or so he was acting as such a few Friday’s ago when the farm implement he was pulling behind a tractor ended up sitting on the tracks in front of an oncoming train. And why is he so luck? Well, because he got out of the tractor and walked away to talk about it.
Tractors have become sophisticated homey pieces of farm equipment. They have radios and CD players along with a sundry of other satellite and electronic controls. The cabs have been redesigned for sound proofing and comfort. It’s been great for the farmer. Farming has kept pace with satellite technology better than the auto industry. As good as all that is it can create distractions or be so sound proof that external risks can be missed. Hopefully he wasn’t wearing his iPod.
