AHCMOM212 Quad Bike Training
Quad bikes are commonplace on farms. However each year, on average, there are 15 fatalities associated with using quad bikes in the Australian rural industry sector.
These statistics are alarming and as a result Workplace Standards Tasmania has adopted a policy of zero tolerance for breaches of duty of care responsibilities with regards to quad bikes.
This course provides the skills and knowledge required to safely operate quad bikes and is suitable for beginners through to more experienced riders. All training is underpinned by WHS principles and legislative requirements.
Participants will learn:
- About pre-start checks and basic maintenance.
- How to turn, swerve and make an emergency stop.
- About safe operation on a range of terrains, around obstacles and in different conditions.
