Quad bike safety: know how to ride and survive

20 December 2016

With quad bikes the leading cause of fatalities on Australian farms, SafeWork SA is reminding people about the risks they pose to riders’ safety, especially children, as school holidays have begun.

SafeWork SA Executive Director Ms Marie Boland said that each year in Australia (2011-16) about 15 to 20 people are killed using a quad bike and a further 8000 people are admitted to hospital (2003-2011) for injuries related to using a quad bike. Young people aged between 10 and 24 are at greater risk of injury
