National Children's Center for Rural and Agricultural Health and Safety

The National Children’s Center for Rural and Agricultural Health and Safety strives to enhance the health and safety of all children exposed to hazards associated with agricultural work and rural environments.





Keep Kids Safe with Rollover Protection

What About Them?

































Studies have shown that use of a ROPS in combination with a seatbelt is 99% effective in preventing deaths associated with tractor rollovers. If your teenaged children are driving your unprotected tractor, call 1-877-ROPS-R4U to get a 70% rebate on a rollbar if you live in WI, NY, PA, VT, NH or MA. More information is available at Tractor Rollover Protective Structure Rebate Program
