Heavy vehicle regulator launches new code of practice for Tasmanian agricultural and horticultural industries

National heavy vehicle regulator (NHVR) has recently registered a new industry code of practice for the Tasmanian agricultural and horticultural industries. 

The Tasmanian Agricultural and Horticultural Registered Industry Code of Practice identifies measures that can be taken to reduce incidents involving heavy vehicles in the agricultural and horticultural industry.

NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto said the code was developed by the Tasmanian Farmers and Graziers Association (TFGA) in consultation with industry stakeholders.

“The Tasmanian Agricultural and Horticultural Registered Industry Code of Practice has been developed by the industry for the industry – who know first-hand the heavy vehicle related hazards and risks faced every day,” Mr Petroccitto said. 

“As well as being industry-specific, the code also recognises that every business is different, and so doesn’t propose a ‘one size fits all’ solution that every industry participant must use.
