Safer Vehicles For Livestock Exchange

featured

The quad bike at the Central West Live- stock Exchange has been replaced with a side by side vehicle (SSV) under the NSW Government’s Quad Bike Safety Improvement Program.

The Forbes Shire Council is advocating the importance of safety in agribusiness and decided on the SSV as it is designed for use in an agricultural environment. It is also fitted as standard with operator protective devices including roll over protection and three point seat belts.

Director Engineering and Technical Services John Zannes said it was extremely important that the team at the Central West Livestock Exchange had the SSV for use, especially in the wake of more deaths and injuries from quad bike incidents in the past six months.

“The quad bike is used at the Central West Livestock Exchange on a regular ba- sis and it is important that we have the safest option possible,” John said.

“Along with the replacement, those who will use the SSV have also undertaken a quad bike safety course and interacted with a SafeWork NSW Officer about quad bike safety.”
