Report includes principles and examples of safe use and design of new or retro-fit of older crates

 

The Queensland government has published a new guide on safe use and design of cattle crates for livestock transporters, crate manufacturers and graziers.

Published by Workplace Health and Safety Queensland, the report was developed in association with the Livestock and Rural Transporters Association of Queensland (LRTAQ) and industry members.

Guide to safe use and design of cattle crates aims to make loading, unloading and cross loading of cattle safer in Queensland.

It includes principles and examples of safe use and design of new or retro-fit of older crates.

The guide also includes some innovative and progressive solutions currently in use across the sector.

Also published this month is a project report, Improving the design of cattle crates: making it safer for operators, that discusses factors that impact on the design of cattle crates and looks at opportunities to progress design improvements in cattle transportation.
