WorkSafe is investigating after a man was killed in a quad bike incident in central Victoria.

The man, aged in his 60s, died after reportedly rolling his quad bike while herding sheep on Thursday.

He was found deceased on his property in Romsey on Friday morning.

His death is the second quad bike-related fatality in Victoria this year.

Quad bikes continue to be the number one cause of death and serious injury in rural workplaces, with many incidents associated with rollovers.

In 2016, there were 10 quad bike fatalities in Australia and half of these were related to rollovers.
