Luke Fo­ley en­dorses TWU’s push to crim­i­nalise de­lib­er­ate non-pay­ment

The Queens­land govern­ment has pub­lished a new guide on the 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.

The guide on the 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-t of older crates.

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

Also pub­lished in July 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.
