Source: Safety Culture

A man in his 30s sustained serious injuries in a tractor accident in South Gippsland on Monday.

The man fell off his tractor and sustained multiple fractures and possible spinal injuries and was flown to hospital.

This incident follows a quad bike accident that claimed the life of a 11-year-old boy near Hamilton last week.

WorkSafe Victoria said agriculture was over-represented in workplace fatalities last year with seven workplace deaths on farms.
