Abstract

In this contribution, we deal with the analysis of the accident rate of agricultural off-road vehicles and fatality figure of service personnel. We analyse reasons of accidents of agricultural mechanisms, however mostly tractors,as well as their consequences. The research was oriented mainly to machine overturn (rollover). We also analyse injuries of service personnel that occurred following the vehicle rollover as well as following the disregard of occupational safety regulations. In the contribution, we present results of the research in Slovakia, which were registered by National Labour Inspectorate in years 2000 – 2012 as well as the unregistered one.
