Risk management is the process of finding out what may cause an injury, deciding what may happen as a result, and doing something about it.

The steps of risk management are: • Identify the hazards to workplace health and safety arising from work activities • Assess the risks

• Determine and implement control measures to reduce risk • Monitor and review the effectiveness of the control measures IDENTIFYING HAZARDS

Prior to commencing work, all hazards related to the work tasks should be identified. The selection of the appropriate work procedure(s) will depend on the type of work procedure(s) and hazards involved. Regular safety inspections will also identify hazards and ensure that control measures are in place. RISK ASSESSMENT Risk assessment allows appropriate control measures to be developed. Once hazards have been identified, they should be assessed in terms of their potential to do harm. To assess risk, consideration should be given to probability and consequences. (SEE RISK ASSESSMENT SCORE CHART - Pg 9). RISK CONTROL Risk control is the process of eliminating or reducing risk factors. Control measures should be chosen and implemented to eliminate or reduce risk as far as practicable. When deciding on the most appro- priate measures to use, practicality and acceptance of the control measures should be considered. Safe Working Procedures will be developed for all high – medium risk hazards. MONITOR AND REVIEW CONTROL MEASURES The risk identification, assessment and control process requires regular monitoring to ensure the implemented control measures perform as originally intended and continue to prevent or adequately control the risk of injury or incident. Control measures should also be checked carefully to ensure that new hazards are not created, directly or indirectly, by the original control measures.

S A F E T Y

Hydraulic fluid escaping under pressure can have sufficient force to cause injury. Keep all hoses and connections in good serviceable condition. Failure to heed may result in serious personal injury or death. Escaping hydraulic fluid under pressure can penetrate the skin causing serious injury. Avoid the hazard by relieving the pressure before disconnecting lines or performing work on the system. Make sure hydraulic fluid connections are tight and all hydraulic hoses and lines are in good condition before applying pressure to the system. Use a piece of paper or cardboard, NOT BODY PARTS , to check for suspected leaks. Wear protective gloves and safety glasses or goggles when working with hydraulic systems. DO NOT DELAY! If an accident occurs, see a doctor familiar with this type of injury immedi- ately. Any fluid injected into the skin or eyes must be treated within a few hours or gangrene may result.

ENSURE HYDRAULIC SYSTEM IS FULLY PRIMED BEFORE USING

PRIMING HYDRAULIC SYSTEM

• Fully extend and retract hydraulic cylinders. • Repeat 3-4 times and hold lever extended each way for 10 to 15 seconds to release air from the system.

If problem exists hold hydraulic lever under pressure, until air is fully released from system.

POWER LINES CAN ARC & ELECTROCUTE WITHOUT COMING IN DIRECT CONTACT

IN THE EVENT OF HYDRAULIC SYSTEM FAILURE OR HYDRAULIC HOSE RUPTURE, YOU MUST FOLLOW THE STEPS SET OUT BELOW. Escaping Hydraulic fluid is dangerous and can cause serious injury or death.

STEP 4: APPLY THE LOCKOUT / TAG-OUT DEVICE. • Disconnect all hydraulic hoses from tractor remotes. • Place Lockout or Out of Service Tags on all hoses. STEP 5: CONTROL THE STORED ENERGY. • Ensure no hydraulic pressure remains in system, slowly release bleed tap (if equipped), or slightly loosen one hydraulic connection on each circuit to allow any remaining fluid under pressure to be released. • Double check the steps and verify that the equipment has been shut down and has the Lock and Tag Labels evident to prohibit operation. Have repairs carried out and defective parts replaced. Do not re-connect to tractor or other hydraulic power source, until system has been fully tested. STEP 6: VERIFY ISOLATION OF EQUIPMENT.

STEP 1: PREPARE FOR SHUTDOWN. • Immediately return hydraulic lever to neutral position. • Stop operating machine.

STEP 2: SHUTDOWN THE EQUIPMENT. • Use hydraulic lever to lower machine to ground (if in raised position).

STEP 3: ISOLATE THE EQUIPMENT. • Freely operate remote levers to release residual pressure from system. • If tractor is equipped place levers in float position. • Shut down tractor.

ELECTRICAL CONNECTION HOOK UP

• Ensure tractor and machine electrical connections are compatible. • Plug lead into tractor terminal. • Test lighting prior to road travel. (Power not required for field work)

THIS IS A GUIDE ONLY AND MUST BE READ IN CONJUNCTION WITH PARTS MANUAL 1) TILT ADJUSTMENT • To adjust - turn top link between drawbar sections. Ensure tine toolbars are level front to back when at desired depth, then lock top link. 2) SPEED RANGE • Refer to seed-box supplier recommendations.

HEADLANDS/ TURNING • Always raise machine when on headlands and when turning.

3) ROAD TRAVEL SPEED LIMIT • 32kmh (20mph)

4) WING LEVELLING • Wings should be pre-set to be level with centre frame when supported by wheels, however if adjustment required: - Unfold machine on level ground. - Ensure wing wheel cylinders are not locked out. - Fully raise machine with wheels (RED). - Ensure cylinders have all reached full stroke (equal length of exposed rod). - check level of centre frame toolbars with wing toolbars, with a spirit level. - Use M48 nuts on wing wheel lug to adust in/out as required (may need to chock frame & raise wheels to do this). - Once wings are level with centre frame, ensure M48 nyloc nut & hex nut (used as a locking nut) are tightened. - Wing levelling adjustment required if centre frame wheel lugs have spacers installed (to increase transport clearance).
