How To Use All-Terrain Vehicles Safely At Work

Driving an All-Terrain Vehicle or ATV may seem like fun and games, but the incorrect use of one could cause a deadly accident. Driving an ATV around the job site poses another host of risks compared to the recreational use. Using an ATV to carry a load or to drive on various surfaces requires extra caution on the driver’s part.

In fact, in response to the increase use of All-Terrain Vehicles in the workplace OSHA has outlines some of the known hazards and has made some recommendations for safe operation. The first recommendation by OSHA is to provide “instruction and hands-on training” to any employee who is to operate an ATV.

You can easily incorporate “All-Terrain Vehicles: Safe Operation & Use of ATVs” as part of your instruction and training for employees. This Video On Demand training demonstrates the hazards and challenges involved with using ATVs on a job site, while providing safety measures all employees should take.

The course covers the following topics:

  • Pre-ride procedures
  • Protective gear
  • Safe driving techniques
  • Incident and injury prevention
  • Navigating challenging terrains
  • Hauling tools and supplies
This course is also available in our Advantage format, allowing learners to earn CEUs upon completion.
