Quad bike rollovers are the leading cause of farm deaths in Australia and are one of the most dangerous pieces of equipment on farms.
In 2015 alone, there were 22 quad bike fatalities and around 70 injuries across Australia - and with eight in the first part of this year, local farming communities are being rocked by these tragic but largely preventable deaths. The Victorian Government through the WorkSafe Victoria is encouraging farmers to take part in a $6 million rebate scheme for approved safety solutions to help reduce quad bike deaths. For those outside Victoria you should also consider your own, your families and your workers safety. For more information on the Victorian rebate scheme, click on the links below:
