Abstract:
Aims to provide insight regarding quad bike use, the circumstances surrounding incidents that occur as a result of their use, and also identifies high risk uses and examines the severity and type of injury sustained by quad bike riders.

Drawing on a variety of existing data sources including ReturnToWorkSA workers’ compensation claims data, national hospital admissions data and the National Coronial Information System (NCIS); it also provides unique in-depth data concerning quad use and incidents through interviews with agricultural workers and patients admitted to hospital following a quad-related incident.

Findings from this study are discussed within the framework of the hierarchy of controls, to assist in the development and implementation of engineering, regulatory and behavioural solutions that might reduce quad bike related injuries in the agricultural sector.
