  8. 8. Key actions/steps • Health & Safety Advisory Group reviewed reports’ findings & occurrence investigations • Recommendation made to Executive – Temporary ban on quad use – Review and report on the use of quads, fit for purpose and training/competence • Endorsed and review group formed
  9. 9. Some key factors • Multiple slightly different procedures existed • Riding a quad is a constantly active and dynamic activity • Swiss army knife of farming - Fit for purpose – use beyond design • Challenge the accepted – lack of available evidence to support and/or challenge • Confidence, experience & judgement • Risk transfer – who is best to manage it
  10. 10. Fit for purpose - Options??
  11. 11. Passengers • Only as per manufacturers recommendations • Risk – Weight balance – Random nature of weight – Explicit ‘no-go’ in Worksafe guidance and manufacturer’s recommendations • Benefits – Traction, experienced passengers – Aid recovery of quads

  14. 14. Just before the end…. • Many H&S risks/issues are complex • Need to engage those closest to the risk and motivated to accept risk • Need to continue to revisit context, conclusions and solutions • Remain vigilant of transferred risk • Don’t be afraid of productive tensions • Are you making it safer? – KEEP GOING
