Preventing Injuries When Working With Ride-On Roller/Compactors

November 2004
DHHS (NIOSH) Publication Number 2005-101
Ride-on roller/compactor with ROPS and seat belt.

Workers who operate or work around roller/compactors are at risk of injury from a machine rollover or being struck by the machine or its components. NIOSH recommends that injuries and deaths be prevented through wider use of rollover protective structures (ROPS) and seat belts on roller/compactors, training, establishing and adhering to safety plans and safe work practices, and using appropriate personal protective equipment.
