Side-by-side vehicles are versatile farming vehicles that are safer alternatives to quad bikes.
Since 2007, SafeWork NSW has recorded 9 fatalities and 10 serious injuries involving side-by-side vehicles.
In 79 per cent of fatalities the vehicle rolled over while in 90 per cent of cases, the driver or passenger didn't wear a seat belt.
SafeWork NSW is running a campaign across print, digital and social channels from 20 August to 26 September 2020 to remind drivers and passengers to buckle up in a side-by-side vehicle.
The campaign is also raising awareness of the safety rebates and training available to eligible farmers.
In 2013, the NSW Government announced a $1.3 million research and testing project into quad bike safety and, this year, we are conducting a comprehensive social media campaign that focuses on quad bike rebates, side-by-side-vehicles and child safety on farms.
