All-terrain vehicles have emerged over the past decade as a useful machine or small vehicle on Australian farms. However, their use is associated with a growing number of fatalities on farms, and Farmsafe Australia has recognised this as a key occupational health and safety issue for the farm sector. The Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation, with other partners in the Farm Health and Safety Joint Research Venture, has recognised the importance of supporting Farmsafe Australia in developing a nationally agreed approach to reducing risk of death and serious injury due to ATV operation on farms, and to ensuring that such an approach is built on a strong evidence base to ensure that programs will be effective.
