Quad bikes

Every year, quad bikes are a major cause of death and serious injury in rural workplaces. Many incidents involve rollovers. 

Safety measures for quad bikes involve: 

  • choosing the right vehicle for the job – quad bikes are not suitable for all terrains 

  • being physically able to control the vehicle, trained and wearing a helmet 

  • not letting children ride adult bikes. 

As a person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU), you have a duty to keep workers and your workplace safe from the risks of quad bikes.
