MEMBER Anoclitlon • Foundtd 1888 Ley Explaines New Tractor Safety Sfanderd! AMI'S: \ firm s itVty stand- .ii\: concorniiis use of ROPS (K >; '-_nv[ protective structures) '<••• .'.criciiltur.il tractors ;oes in•>• i-t'fect j.rae 1, 1-)75, nntion- i!!y uic! o(i ..lays later in Iowa. D i!e Hull, extension agri- '•iikurnl engineer .it lo.v.i State U.mvrsily, cxpl.iins that Iowa .ver.itus uiv.icr a state plan ap: i:..\v,! !.y Feileral OS11A (Ctcu- national Safety and Health Act.) About 30 days are needed to get the ROPS standard approved for low.i. That's the reason for the difference in state and federal effective dates. Flze federal standard requires th.it agricultural tractors manufactured after October 25, 1976 shall meet a number of requirements including: (1) A roll-over protective structure shall be provided by the employer for each tractor operated by an employee. "This C.TJI be an approved safety cab or a metal protective frame." Hull said. (2) Where roll-over protective structures are required, an employer must provide each tractor with an approved seatbelt. The employer must require that each employee uses the seatbelt while the tractor is moving and that the seatbelt is tightened sufficiently to confine the driver to the protected area. These ROPS standards do not apply on low profile tractors in use in orchards, vineyards, or hop yards, or inside a farm building or greenhouse where vertical clearance requirements would substantially interfere with normal operation or where vertical clearance is insufficient to allow a ROPS-equipped tractor to operate. Another exception to the standards is on tractors used with mounted equipment that is incompatible with ROPS such as cornpickers. If ROPS arc removed for any reason, the standards require they shall be re-mounted. The standards also require that every employee operating an agricultural tractor shall be informed of the operating practices outlined in the rules and of any other practices dictated by die work environment. Such information shall be provided at the time of initial assignment and at least annually thereafter. Hull said an employer must be able to prove in writing that each employee has been Listruc- ted. The employee operating instructions to be given by the em- ployer must include the following! —Securely fasten your seatbelt if the tractor has a roil-over protective structure. —Where possible, avoid operating the tractor near ditches, embankments and holes. —Reduce speed when turning, crossing slopes, and on rough, slick or muddy surfaces. —Stay off slopes too steep for safe operation. —Watch where you are going, especially at row ends, on roads and around trees. —Do not permit others to ride. —Operate the tractor smoothly. Do not make jerky turns, starts or stops. —Hitch only to the drawbar and hitch points recommended by tractor manufacturers. —When tractor is stopped, set brakes securely and use park lock if available.
