Essential Tractor Safety Checks

The Essential Tractor Safety Checks safety leaflet from the HSA, the RSA and An Garda Síochána provides practical advice on how to reduce risk with tractors, including:

  • Use the flashing amber beacon at all times in accordance with new lighting and visibility laws
  • Keep tractor windows and mirrors clean to allow an unobscured view
  • Keep tractors in good serviceable and road worthy condition
  • Keep steering systems and all brakes working correctly
  • Apply the handbrake before leaving the cab, remove key from engine and dismount facing the tractor
