In all productive sectors, commuting (�in itinere�) accidents involve a high cost for the society both economically and of human lives. Owing to the importance of agriculture in Galicia, was decided to develop this study from commuting sick leave reports provided by the Health and Safety Galician Institute (ISSGA) and from official statistics of the Employment and Immigration Department (MTIN), to characterize serious and fatal commuting accidents in the agrarian sector and to compare them with other sectors both in Galicia and in Spain. The percentage of commuting accidents in Galicia was slightly lower than in Spain, although the rates of serious and fatal accidents were higher; 95.7% were traffic accidents. These accidents were more frequent in males, with fixed-term contracts and in qualified workers or forest laborers employed in forestry that worked for others. Companies used to have from 10 to 49 employees, worked in forestry or logging and the accidents tended to occur more frequently on Mondays and Wednesdays at 8 AM.
