Quad bikes are involved in approx. 28% of all work related farm deaths. Figures from MBIE indicated 850 people are seriously injured each year and 120 people have lost their lives. There are an estimated 220,000 quad bikes in Australia with 80% being used in rural industries.
“Quad bikes are the leading cause of death in Australian agriculture and a significant contributor to injuries, with half of these related to the bike rolling over.”
Quad Bike Safety – 2012.
In 2012, the Health and Safety Aus/NZ/USA concluded that the manufacturers’ decision to oppose CBDs (Roll Bars) has been demonstrated and established now to be invalid and recommended that Roll Bars be installed on all Quad Bikes as the danger of not having one installed and the chances of serious injury or death are clear and tragic.
