Roadworthy Heavy Vehicles... Made Easy workshops will return in 2021!
Since the project began in February 2020, GPSA Regional Field Officer Shane Gale has delivered heavy vehicle workshops in 15 rural and regional locations across SA. The workshops have been a huge success with overwhelming engagement from growers across the State. We look forward to delivering another round of workshops beginning in January 2021!
See what the project is all about...
Do you understand what is required for your heavy vehicles to be roadworthy in line with the National Heavy Vehicle Inspection Manual?
Not sure if your heavy vehicles are compliant?
Grain Producers SA, on behalf of Primary Producers SA, and the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) are partnering to deliver a series of FREE Roadworthy Heavy Vehicles … Made Easy! workshops specifically to help SA primary producers understand heavy vehicle roadworthiness requirements.
The theory and practical workshops are designed for members of Primary Producers SA who own and operate their own heavy vehicles and help to deliver on our commitment to road safety.
Theory workshops are led by road transport experts who have a comprehensive knowledge of quality management and National heavy vehicle maintenance systems.
Theory workshops will be held to provide primary producers with:
- Outline of the NHVR Heavy Vehicle Inspection Manual
- Road safety awareness
- Producer compliance and maintenance responsibilities
- Requirements of the regulator
- Possible changes that may be introduced SA’s Heavy Vehicle Inspection Scheme
In addition, all theory workshop participants have the opportunity to take part in a practical workshop to receive valuable hints and tips on keeping heavy vehicle’s roadworthy.
Early registrants may have the opportunity to have their own vehicle's roadworthiness checked for FREE as part of each theory workshop (spots are limited).
Primary producers who attend the workshops will receive training and knowledge which will be essential in helping them to develop a tailored approach to heavy vehicle maintenance, inspections and compliance on vehicles involved in their farm businesses.
The Roadworthy Heavy Vehicles… Made Easy! campaign has been funded by the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator’s Heavy Vehicle Safety Initiative Program, with the support of the Federal Government.
