    Farmers are being urged to be take care using equipment -- after four farm deaths this month

    Farmers are being urged to be take care using equipment -- after four farm deaths this month


    Two fatalities involved tractors in Te Kuiti and Hastings, another involved a child in a dairy shed in Opotiki, and a quad bike rollover in Central Hawke's Bay on Monday.

    WorkSafe engagement lead for agriculture, Al McCone, says farmers need to reduce risk.

    He says a seatbelt needs to be worn on a tractor or a vehicle with a roll cage -- that way the likelihood of being thrown out and crushed is lessened.
