Grain Producers SA is proud to deliver FREE Roadworthy Heavy Vehicles... Made Easy workshops again in 2021!

Registration is FREE but limited due to COVID-19 restrictions, and available to all PPSA commodity group members.

Theory and practical workshops provide attendees with industry-specific information regarding the NHVR Heavy Vehicle Inspection Manual, with a focus on road safety, compliance and maintenance responsibilities.

Heavy vehicle safety operations conducted by the NHVR and South Australian Police in 2020 support the need for a greater focus on maintaining heavy vehicle roadworthiness.

GPSA regional field officer Shane Gale said SAPOL had issued a significant number of defect and expiation notices in the October 2020 operation, providing a timely reminder for all heavy vehicle owners and operators to ensure they understand their heavy vehicle safety requirements.

The first round of workshops in 2020 was highly successful, with about 70 per cent of workshop attendees saying they are likely to make changes to their business after attending the workshops.

As part of the campaign, participants have the opportunity to access a free heavy vehicle inspection with a local mechanic to gain practical tips on maintenance checks.

GPSA member and primary producer Anthony Pfitzner found the practical workshop in Riverton particularly valuable to his maintenance practices.

"We have staff who regularly drive our trucks and I want to ensure my vehicles are safe and roadworthy for them," he said.

"We get our mechanic to do annual checks on the truck, but we don't get to sit and go through the inspection and what to look for in great detail with them like we could in the practical workshop.

"Whatever goes on the road needs to be roadworthy, whether that be a farm-to-farm truck or a truck carting grain and hay on the highway.

"It's important for us as farmers to take responsibility for heavy vehicle roadworthiness."

The Roadworthy Heavy Vehicles... Made Easy! campaign has been funded by the NHVR's Heavy Vehicle Safety Initiative Program, with the support of the Federal Government.
