The first step in injury prevention is to understand the injury problem.
This includes examining the nature of the problem from the perspective of the target community.
This article uses qualitative methods to explain the nature of the injury problem and identifies prevention strategies through a three-step process : identify a causal model, validate the model, and identify strategies using the causal model.
A causal model linking safety performance and safety demand, health decision making, and occupational stress was derived by secondary analysis of farm family focus group data (step 1) and validated by other farm family focus groups (step 2).
Prevention strategies identified from the causal model (step 3) include decreasing the number of roles performed exclusively by one individual, developing an easy-to-use planning tool that assists farmers in anticipating and reducing future work demands, and developing an education module that incorporates injury costs into safety decision making.
