Farm safety gains traction but improvements needed
Tractors and quad bikes remain the leading causes of injury on Australian farms but deaths from both vehicles have declined significantly since 2017, according to new research.
The AgriFutures Australia-funded work
shows fatal accidents caused by tractors fell from 13 to nine and deaths involving quads fell from 11 to six in the 12 months from 2017 to 2018.
