Safer farms roll bar campaign
Posted on Monday, 16 May 2022
Taking steps to protect staff and loved ones from serious injury is a top priority for most farmers around the country. Crush protection devices (CPDs) create a gap between a quad bike and the ground during a roll over and absorb the weight of the bike instead of the rider.
Fitting a CPD on a quad bike gives you some control over the outcome of a roll over and gives you a ‘space for survival’ to crawl out or call for help.
Safer Farms, ACC, and WorkSafe strongly recommend the use of CPDs on quad bikes. ACC is currently offering farmers a $180+GST cash back on the Quadbar, Quadbar flexi and ATV Lifeguard crush protection devices. You can redeem the cash back on up to two selected CPDs. Eligibility criteria applies.
