Transport safety in Wiltshire is to come under the spotlight from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
A team of seven inspectors will be visiting as many farms as possible across the county, in what they describe as "an agricultural transport inspection blitz".
The aim is to improve safety on farms.
A HSE spokesperson said: "We will be concentrating on a variety of issues concerning transport on the farm, including vehicle maintenance and driver training.
"We want to prevent accidents to farmers, farm workers, their children and visitors to farm whether for business or leisure activities," he added.
But Nancy Bryant, a Wiltshire farmer and former National Farmers' Union (NFU) chair, told BBC News Online: "I don't think inspections do any good.
"We are very aware of the situation - if it is your own children, you don't take chances.
"Most farmers are aware of the laws," she added.
The HSE says that, on average, there is one death per week on farms in the UK.
About 20% of these are transport related.
