Machinery Operations Guideline Review

Machinery Operations Guideline Review 

We need your help.  TFGA, in conjunction with the Tasmanian Fire Service, produced the Machinery Operations Guideline – a basis for safe work in dry vegetation. Click here to view.

The purpose of the Guideline is to provide fire safety measures for machinery operations in or near dry vegetation, and specifies criteria for when fire weather conditions warrant stopping machinery operations.

Through the 2017/18 harvest season did you have to shut down machinery in response to fire weather conditions?  If you did, please contact the Nick Steel at the TFGA to assist us to improve this policy for next season.  Telephone 6332 1800 or via email here.
