Woodland establishment machines – two near misses

Tracked base machine slides away and quad bike overturns.

Plan your work to allow yourself flexibility to react to changing weather conditions, particularly when it comes to areas of steep ground or ground which may become more difficult to navigate during or after rain.

When transporting materials ensure they are correctly secured, this will greatly reduce the likelihood that they will shift in transit and unbalance the quad.
The FISA Safety Guide 701 ATV quad bikes offers additional advice on the safe carrying of loads and sets other important safety standards for the safe operation of quads.
