Tractors account for approximately 15% of work-related fatalities among those employed in agriculture in Australia, which is an average of 22 deaths per year. Mounting and dismounting a tractor has been identified as a common antecedent to tractor run-over events. Two farm safety action groups in Victoria have fitted a number of tractors with safe access platforms and this report outlines the results of an evaluation of the uptake and implementation of this initiative. 2005, 76pp, Pub.
