Updated Melbourne Market Operating Rules
The MMA recently undertook a review of the site Operating Rules and has made changes to improve the health, safety and overall operation of the Melbourne Market.
Businesses and Market users must familiarise themselves with the changes. The complete updated Operating Rules can be found online.
Key changes include increased ‘demerit points’ to the following rules:
- Operating Rule 10 – Specific Vehicle Restrictions
In addition, there is a new operating rule relating to forklifts and other ‘Approved Vehicles’:
Operating Rule 10.1 Forklift and Market Approved Vehicles
A Person on Market Land must not:
(c) operate or drive a forklift without wearing a seatbelt
(d) operate or drive a Market Approved Vehicle without the installation of
appropriate and operational restraints.
Seatbelt wearing has always been compulsory while operating a forklift, and now in light of the latest WorkSafe requirements, this rule has been expanded to apply restraint wearing to all market approved vehicles (e.g golf buggies).
