The Quad Bike - Operation of Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) is a comprehensive document outlining the safety steps, main hazards, risks and controls associated with the operation of a quad bike.
Quad bikes or All Terrain Vehicles (ATV’s) can be dangerous and can easily roll over. Each year, more than 12 Australians are killed in ATV incidents, many of these are children. The term “All Terrain Vehicle” can be misleading, as these vehicles do have limitations and CANNOT be operated on all terrain – such as slippery surfaces, steep slopes etc. The manufacturer’s operating manual MUST be read before any person operates an ATV. Persons under 16, or persons with a small frame, should not operate industrial sized ATVs.
Remember: The content of the SWMS should be refined over time and include consultation with workers and other persons conducting a business or undertaking. Prior to each new activity, the SWMS must be reviewed and revised to ensure it applies to the high risk construction work and the actual site you are working at.
