This revised leaflet was previously published in the Agriculture Safety series as AS24. It is aimed at all users of PTO-driven equipment.

Every year people are killed or seriously injured in accidents involving PTOs and PTO drive shafts. Most of these accidents are preventable.

This leaflet outlines how to choose, fit and maintain guards safely.
