Info and tips for tractor risk assessments
Agricultural tractors are a widely used machine both in agriculture and other industries including civil construction, ground care and materials handling. This is possible thanks to the adaptability and range of tractors & attachments available today.
With such a broad application, a thorough risk assessment process is required. Plant Assessor covers many different types of tractors from small tractors with engine power under 40 horse power to rigid tractors with frontend loaders right through to huge articulated tracked & wheeled tractors used to draw farming and earthmoving implements.
Unfortunately, tractors have proven to be very dangerous, and until recently, they were involved in more fatalities on farms than any other machine. ATV bikes have taken over this mantle for now.
Plant Assessor's risk assessments covers the hazards with all tractor types. The two main hazards associated with tractors are crushing and entanglement.
The three main areas crushing can occur include due to a rollover, around the front end loader or around the rear linkage. Specific risk treatments are required to manage the crushing hazards for each of these.
Entanglement occurs in fewer locations but can have similar consequences. The main area for entanglement is around the PTO usually at the rear of the tractor although it can be at the front.
