Farm vehicles

The most common cause of serious and fatal injuries in agriculture involve moving and overturning vehicles. These webpages provide guidance on how to manage workplace transport issues.

Tractors and self propelled vehicles

The majority of tractor and other farm vehicle fatal accidents are as a result of overturns when working on slopes or running over people.

All Terrain Vehicles

ATVs are designed to cope with a wide variety of terrain types, including steep slopes, but if used outside their safe operating parameters they can very rapidly become unstable.


Telehandlers are widely used for moving materials and goods, but they are involved in about a quarter of all workplace transport accidents.
