ROPS National Tractor Safety Programs

National ROPS Rebate Program

Tractor accidents were the number one cause of death, accounting for more than 1,700 fatalities among U.S. farmworkers since 2003. A rollover protective structure (ROPS) is an operator compartment structure (usually cab or rollbar) intended to protect farmers from injuries caused by rollovers.  A ROPS, when used with a seat belt, is 99 percent effective in preventing injury or death in the event of an overturn.

The National ROPS Rebate Program is designed to defray the cost of a ROPS and make their tractor safer.

Tractor owners can apply via the ROPS hotline

1-877-767-7748 (1-877-ROPSR4U, Option 2)
