Agriculture's status as one of the nation's most hazardous occupations has been an impetus for a reexamination of the federal role in agricultural safety and for various proposals to make farming safer.
During the 1970s congressional debate and farm group testimony that led the agriculture's current exemption from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's enforcement efforts, regulation foes made use of the « Agrarian Myth ».
The myth portrays farmers as the bedrock of democracy, suffering so that society may prosper and living a natural life away from the artificiality and evils of cities.
