Abstract:
A guide intended for drivers, owner/operators, farmers/primary producers, feedlot operators and abattoir operators. Preventing falls when transporting livestock involves a supply chain approach that includes the loading and unloading points, and the truck trailer or crate. Methods for preventing falls include harness based systems on trucks, and walkways on stock races at the loading and unloading points. The guide describes safety solutions that should be put in place immediately by retrofitting plant and equipment, and longer-term solutions that should be put in place when purchasing new plant or equipment or reconfiguring layout.
