By doing this thesis I want to open up farmers and tractor drivers mind to see that there is several risks with their work. There is a number of risks that everybody probably already know about, and hopefully I will, with this work, help them to see a lot more risks, to make them be more careful in the future. I've interviewed seventeen farmers in middle and south of Sweden. I've also asked them for their opinion and what kind of changes they looking forward to. In the research part I've presented all the drivers answers and comments and in the discussion I've presented different kind of solutions to make tractor driving and work around the tractor safer. I've tried to make this thesis easy to overview bye using the same headlines in both the research and the discussion. The headlines used are: Owners manual Connecting different kinds of equipment to the tractor First aid kit Safety when driving Leavers Getting in and out of the tractor cabin Vibrations Underage drivers Cabin environment Noise Some of the most remarkable results are that there is a big lack in knowledge about how heavy their tractors actually are allowed to pull. Further there was a pretty bad result concerning if there is a first aid kit in each of their tractors. It was actually so that there was a kit in the new tractors but not in the old once. From this result it seems that it's not the tractor drivers that put the first aid kit in their tractor, but the manufacturer. When I asked them about the brakes on their tractors I got a positive response. Everybody answered that the brakes on their tractors was working just fine. Quiet a few of the interviewed drivers pointed that it had happened more than once that they've forgot to lock the two brake pedals together, when going from field on to a road. I have, in my thesis, presented a very simple solution so that nobody ever will forget to lock the pedals together. Let's hope for the manufacturer to start using a device like that… All of the interviewed farmers agreed that tractors have become better and better. This is reflecting my results where it's continually coming back in the answers.
