                        Machinery Dealers

                        Satisfy your buyers and your safety obligations 

                        get started

                        Let us show you how easy it can be to provide required safety information when selling new or used machines.

                        Trusted by the biggest machinery dealer companies, including:

                        Hitachi-logo Hastings-deering-cat-logo Semco-logo JCB-logo Komatsu-logo Liebherr-logo

                        Peace of mind for you and your customers.

                        When dealing in machinery, making sure you’re meeting your legal obligations when selling new or used equipment is critical. The financial cost for breaches can be devastating – not to mention the potentially fatal consequences.

                        But with different acts, regulations, standards and codes to consider, and with legislation frequently changing - ensuring you’re meeting your obligations can be time consuming, costly and complicated. 

                        Whether you import, manufacture, modify or sell machinery, use Plant Assessor to ensure machinery is up to Australian Standards, and that you're providing all necessary safety information to your buyers.


                        Your obligations

                        Suppliers of new machines must provide proof that all reasonably practical hazards have been identified, alterations or modifications are clearly stated and adequate information is provided regarding the safe use of the machine. 
                        When selling second-hand plant, you must also give written notice to the purchaser, that outlines: 
                         The condition of the plant,
                        including identified faults 
                         If appropriate, that the plant should not
                        be used until the faults are rectified 
                        Second-hand plant is more likely to have out-dated or missing safety features. In these circumstances suppliers of second-hand plant must do what is reasonably practicable to supply equipment safe for use at work.

                        Compliance Health Check


                        We have developed a comprehensive Machinery Compliance Health Check, specific to Machinery Dealers.

                        Simply answer the yes or no questions across the two sections to see how your current processes stack up against current legislation.


                        The health check will assess:

                        Hazard identification processes

                        Risk mitigation processes

                         Information management and sharing
