A 26-year-old man working in the field was pulled by his clothes by the linkage between the combine and the tractor. The circumstances of the farmer’s death in Wójcza in the Busko poviat are being explained by the policemen under the supervision of the prosecutor’s office.
Aspirant Justyna Konopka from the Poviat Police Headquarters in Busko-Zdrój said that the accident occurred on Monday during work in the field in the village of Wójcza in the Busko district, in the Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship.
A 26-year-old man, a resident of the Solec-Zdrój commune, died during field work with the use of a potato harvester. – He was pulled by his clothes by the shaft connecting the combine to the agricultural tractor – explained the officer. The man could not be saved.
Police officers work under the supervision of the prosecutor.
The National Labor Inspectorate reminds that equipping machines with special guards and protective elements is one of the most important safety rules when working in the field. All moving and sharp machine parts, in particular the shaft connecting the agricultural machine to the tractor, must be covered along the entire length. This will prevent body parts or clothes from being caught by the rotating, powerfully driven roller.
