Operate Cane Haulage Vehicle (in-field)

With the changes regarding the licence requirements for sugar cane haulout drivers, it is now the EMPLOYER'S responsibiity to ensure that his or her worker is instructed and inducted in the operation of the cane haulage vehicle to the required standard.
To support you with this task, we have developed a number of documents for instruction as well as training recording documentation to assist you to meet your training requirements under the Work Health & Safety Act 2011.  It is expected that your worker will have completed all instruction and documentation prior to driving your haulout vehicle.
Option 1: A kit has been designed for farmers to conduct haulout driver training and inductions on farms. The kit includes:
  • Driver instruction manual
  • Safe Operating Procedures
  • Safety Induction Information
  • Appropriate record keeping documents
  • User guide for online Harvest Safety Inductions
These kits are available at CANEGROWERS Mackay reception - cost to be advised.  Once payment has been received, a username and password are created to access the online Harvest Safety Inductions. For more information phone Shelley 4944 2608
Option 2: This option is for the employer who wishes to have the employee assessed by one of our industry trainers and be awarded the unit competency "Operate a Cane Haulage Vehicle".  This option will ensure that the participant meets the requirements which were originally required by the UD Licence.  An advantage of this option is that the industry trainer will come to your farm!
