NSW Farmers welcomes quad bike safety rebate

NSW Farmers has welcomed new details of the SafeWork NSW $2 million Quad Bike Safety Improvement Program, outlined recently in the NSW Budget.

Minister for Innovation and Better Regulation, Victor Dominello, revealed details of the program at the NSW Farmers Annual Conference.    

The program includes rebates up to $500 for small farming businesses in NSW for purchasing one or a combination of the eligible four safety solutions:

Up to $310 toward the cost of quad bike training at existing RTO in NSW.

Up to $250 towards the purchase of either the Quadbar ™ Operator Protective Device (OPD) or ATV Lifeguard OPD.

Up to $500 to purchase a side-by-side vehicle.

Up to $45 to purchase a helmet compliant with NZS 8600:2002, AS/NZS 1698:2006 and/or UNECE22.05.

In addition, each worker of qualifying businesses can also access the rebate program for training and purchasing of one suitable helmet.There are up to 6530 distinct rebates available, with maximum rebated amount applicable for each safety solution.

SafeWork NSW requires farmers to attend an eligible educative interaction with them before purchasing the safety solutions to qualify for the rebates, similar to the small business rebate program.

NSW Farmers has been successful in securing the role as the rebate program’s administrator, which means that we will be performing the processing of incoming applications. For more information about the rebate program, please refer to NSW Farmers.
