In recognition that quad bikes are a major contributing factor in workplace deaths and injuries in primary industries, the Primary Industries Health and Safety Partnership (PIHSP) is conducting a project to provide Quad Bike Safety Training for primary producers.
The short training sessions (approximately 1 ½ - 2 hours) are designed to raise awareness of the key safety risks associated with quad bike use, and discuss and demonstrate important risk management strategies.
The Quad Bike Safety Training will be piloted in Wagga on Thursday 10 November 2016, with two separate events commencing at 10am and 2pm. I am seeking your assistance in identifying primary producers in the region that would be interested in attending the training and providing feedback on the delivery and value of the activity.
While both timeslots are open to primary producers of all ages, we would like to specifically target younger farmers and students studying agricultural and rural based courses for the 2pm training event. Places are limited, with each session able to accommodate 20 – 30 participants.
Participation in the training is free of charge, with travel at a participant’s own cost. No preparation is required ahead of the training, and information materials will be provided to participants on the day.
A representative from Safework NSW will be in attendance for eligible farmers to access the NSW Quad Bike Safety Improvement Program and the Small Business safety rebates.
Further information on the training, including the venue, will be forwarded to attending farmers in a confirmation email in advance of the event.
To register, interested farmers should phone HART on 02 9391 5110 or email the following details to firstname.lastname@example.org by COB Thursday 27th October 2016
