Safety Research

My safety research has focused on tractor safety and safety in the agricultural teaching laboratory. A bibliography of selected papers follows:

  • Schumacher, L. G., Hires, B. and Frisby, J. (1991). Tractor safety: Are farmers using OEM safety devices?. Journal of Agricultural Mechanization, 6 (1), 18-23.

  • Schumacher, L. G. and Harrison, J. D. (1991). A theoretical basis for shop safety color Coding. Proceedings of the Central Region Conference in Agricultural Education Poster Board Competition. Chicago, IL.

  • Schumacher, L. G., Hires, B. and Frisby, J. (1989). Tractor safety: Are farmers using OEM safety devices?. American Society of Agricultural Engineers Winter Meeting 1989. New Orleans, LA: paper #89-1625.
