Why should helmets be worn by quad bike operators?

Helmets are an important piece of safety equipment for quad bike operators that can save lives in the event of a rollover or other incident.

We recognise some farmers find the current helmets that comply with AS/NZS 1698 can be too hot, too heavy, awkward to wear, lack sun protection and cut off hearing and/or peripheral vision.

To increase the current rates of helmet use by quad bike operators on-farm, we are encouraging farmers to review the current helmets on the market that comply with applicable standards and select the helmet that best suits their needs.
