NHVR issues regulatory advice for trucks working during harvest

The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) says harvest season is a good time to focus on the risks faced by agricultural workers, who may have to work long days to complete the harvest in a tight timeframe.

The regulator says it’s also important to ensure all heavy vehicles used for agricultural work are well maintained, mechanically safe and fit for purpose.

For best practices and information, the NHVR’s Regulatory Advice for operating in the agricultural sector can be found here.

And for information specific to maintaining heavy vehicles used in agricultural or seasonal work, Regulatory Advice is available here.
