Since 2009, there have been 145 equipment and machinery-related serious injuries on BC farms and ranches, 11 of them fatal. To help employers and workers prevent such injuries, WorkSafeBC launched a tractor and equipment safety initiative, which includes a new web page with several free online resources. Visitors to the site can download frequently asked questions on working safely with tractors, an equipment and machine safety checklist in several languages and a video on how to prevent tractor rollovers.
