The online induction is aimed at making the industry and especially work at sidings, safer for everyone working in the shared workplaces. All workplaces must comply with the Work Health & Safety Act 2011 to ensure that all workers are aware of their obligations and are aware of the risks associated with working in a rural environment and are equipped to manage those risks.

Sugar Cane Siding

The siding or delivery point is considered a workplace and as such presents a number of risks and hazards which need to be managed.

This online siding induction are for all siding users (Growers, including family members, employees or contractors and contractor’s employees) who may be required to enter a siding during their working day.
You must be LICENCED to operate a vehicle in a shared workplace (siding) – this applies to anyone going into a siding or interacting with bins, locos or other plant or equipment in the siding area.

Only persons 15 years of age or over (and intending to physically set foot in a siding) can undertake the siding induction – this does NOT mean they are eligible to drive within the siding.

Exception: if one of the children goes down to the siding for a ride in the tractor with Mum or Dad and they don’t get out of the vehicle at any time, then they do not need to be inducted.
