Other Machines and Systems

Engineering design and the incorporation of safety features goes beyond field and farmstead machines. Engineering safety standards can be followed in the design or installation of such machines and systems as crop handling and processing equipment, livestock structures, livestock handling and related equipment, crop storage structures, waste (manure) storage structures, irrigation systems, ventilation systems, fencing, chemical containment, and others. Since in the United States such standards are voluntary, following such standards is up to the designer, manufacturer, construction contractor, or owner/operator of such systems (7).
