ATVs are used in agriculture as a substitute for pick-up trucks, horses, and just moving about. In 2015, there were 340 deaths and over 97,000 injuries reported involving ATVs that were being used for recreation and work purposes. This webinar will discuss the burden of ATV incidents and provide links to ATV safety training materials that are currently available. Information on ATV safety simulators will be presented. A blueprint will be provided to participants for creating a low-cost, portable, hands-on ATV safety demonstration.
At the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:
- Understand the burden of ATV injuries and fatalities in the agricultural community.
- Be able to access up-to-date educational materials on the safe use of ATVs and on proper personal protective equipment.
- Understand how ATV simulators can be used as an educational tool to convey safety messages.
- Have all the information needed to create a low-cost ATV demonstration.
