  • Ergon Online Safety Inductions

    Look up and Live!
    Working in close proximity to powerlines, above or below the ground, has its hazards.  Unfortunately each year, workers in the sugar cane industry come in contact with Ergon Energy assets.  This includes contact with poles, wires and pillar boxes by vehicles and the loads they are carrying.  Contact can also occur during harvesting and haulout operations, when moving machinery and plant from one location to another or when irrigating.  CANEGROWERS Mackay offers an online Safe Working Near Electrical Assets in the Rural Industry induction that will enable you to be fully informed on all aspects of electricity.  Please contact CANEGROWERS Mackay office on 4944 2600 for further information.
