In recognition of the continuing high death rate from quad bike rollovers, the Australian Centre for Agricultural Health & Safety (University of Sydney) has developed a new policy statement in relation to rollover protection devices for quad bikes. Please CLICK HERE to view the Media Release “New evidence on rollover protection devices to reduce deaths on quad bikes”.
Based on the current evidence, we reinforce the message that all owners and operators of quad bikes must take steps to protect riders in the event of a rollover.
