Mill Statistics

Harvest & Transport Safety


  • 6 collisions in total in the Burdekin region in 2017, all of which involved local traffic mostly off road ie. siding incidents, farm access points.
  • Mackay Sugar had a fatality during a shunting process in a siding and Wilmar’s Plane Creek facility experienced a near fatality.
  • Incidents highlight the importance that harvesting contractors/haulout operators and respective employees individually complete “siding inductions” in order to have a thorough understanding of policies and processes for working in sidings or adjacent to cane railway lines.
  • Burdekin Cane Supply and Transport staff have been very appreciative of growers and contractors reporting information in relation to faulty bins throughout the season.
