Tractor Safety


This program aims to provide practical guidelines for employers and workers to improve and ensure the safety of those who use tractors on farms, and those who are in the vicinity of areas where tractors are being used. Correct operation is critical.


Our training program provides guidelines on the hazards and risks associated with working with tractors and practical guidelines on how to implement effective occupational health and safety (OHS) risk control that will not only reduce risk, but will assist farmers to meet OHS regulatory requirements, and improve productivity. 

Target Audience:

People working with tractors on the farm are exposed to risk of injury and illness associated with a range of hazards. Tractors have been proven to be the most deadly piece of equipment on Australian farms. 

This program is aimed at those people working on or near tractors.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Tractor rollover
  • Tractor run over
  • Tractor power take offs (PTOs)
  • Hydraulics
  • Ergonomics
  • Noise
  • Operator skills

Learning Methods:

Program Benefits:


  • People who operate smaller tractors without a cabin are at risk of injury or death from tractor rollover.
  • Driving on narrow or raised tracks or roads poses a risk of the tractor rolling over embankments and injury to the operator.
  • The risk of tractor run over is always present wherever tractors are working.
  • Working near an inadequately guarded PTO shaft runs the risk of entanglement.
  • Hydraulic fluid under pressure poses risk of penetrating injury.
  • Operating tractors for long hours can be associated with back, shoulder and other pain and injury – especially with poorly designed seats and controls.
  • Workers who are unskilled in the work process and unaware of the safety risks are at a higher risk of injury and illness in the workplace and place others at a higher risk.

We all know what it’s like…

Your business is going great (or not… COVID-19); you’re doing the things you know. But you also know that there are some pinch points in your business; some areas that could be safer, some processes you need to introduce.
But you’re frozen: I don’t know what to do? I don’t know where to start? Will the business afford it? Am I putting myself or business at risk?
