Prevent Tractor Runovers and Rollovers

According to the Canadian Agricultural Injury Reporting, the leading causes of farm fatalities across Canada are tractor runovers and rollovers. Although today’s tractors have many more safety features than machines of the past, they can still be extremely dangerous.

Tractor runovers tend to happen when there is a lack of rules on when and how to approach equipment.

The risk of injury or death due to tractor rollovers is high, particularly when operators do not properly wear seat belts, or similar occupant restraints.
