Worksafe Tasmania Rebate Scheme

Jul 1, 2019


A Quad Bike Safety Rebate Scheme is available to Tasmanian farmers to improve safety on quad bikes. The Tasmanian Government is encouraging relevant workplaces to take part in the rebate scheme to help reduce quad bike injuries and deaths.

The 12-month rebate scheme will allow farmers to claim up to 50% of the purchase price (to a maximum of $500) for an approved operator/rollover/crush protection device, with up to a total of $1,000 available for each eligible farm workplace.

Rebates are available for operator/rollover/crush protection devices purchased from 1 July 2019. However, eligible farmers who purchase a device from 23 May 2019, and can provide valid proof of purchase, may also apply for the rebate from 1 July 2019.

An operator/rollover/crush protection device is an engineered attachment that is fitted to a quad bike. It is designed to help protect riders from crush-related injuries in the event of a rollover.

The device approved for this rebate scheme must have been designed and manufactured in accordance with approved engineering standards and independently tested to be eligible for the rebate. There are currently two devices which are eligible for the rebate: they are the Quadbar™ and the ATV Lifeguard.
