    In many quad bike related fatalities, the victim was not noticed as missing for at least 24 hours, sometimes considerably longer. Some of these lives could have been saved if the victim communicated they were injured and received help promptly. As farm employees often work alone, it is important someone else knows their planned movements. If they are late returning, a phone or two way radio call will keep concerned parties informed. If there is no answer, the other person can arrange for someone to search for the person. Developing a communication plan is a good safety strategy. Once established, it will soon become automatic.
