Each year, approximately 26.7 out of every 100,000 American farmers die on the job.
The tractor is the leading cause of death on a farm; the most frequent cause of tractor-related deaths are side and rear overturns (96 deaths per year).
80% of deaths caused by rollovers happen to experienced farmers.
1 in 7 farmers involved in tractor overturns are permanently disabled.
7 out of 10 farms will go out of business within five years of a tractor overturn fatality.
ROPS are 99% effective in preventing injury or death in the event of an overturn when used with a seatbelt, and 70% effective when used without a seatbelt.
Roughly ½ of US tractors do not have rollover protection.
Through the National ROPS Rebate Program, the average out-of-pocket expense for a ROPS kit is $391.
