Let’s get to it.
The importance of tractor safety cannot be overstated.
When many people think of tractor safety issues --- one of the first things that comes up is rolling over.
One of the most important safety features on a tractor is the ROPS --- which is a “Rollover Protective Structure” designed to protect the operator in the event that their tractor rolls over backward or sideways.
These types of accidents can cause anything from a very minor injury to an unfortunate fatality.
And there’s another type of injury that should always be top of mind. This is the potential for falling debris to hit a tractor operator on the head. While it not as common as a rollover --- falling debris is an issue that must be addressed to keep the tractor operator safe.
To avoid these kinds of injuries, it is important to outfit your tractor with a FOPS.
