Available to download from the National Measurement Institute, the Weighbridge Operators Manual offers a complete guide on the operation of weighbridges for trade, including public weighbridges, in compliance with the National Measurement Act 1960 and the National Trade Measurement Regulations 2009.

Weighbridges are used throughout Australia for a variety of reasons, such as determining freight or charges, and can be privately or publicly operated.

This document is an A to Z of terminology, requirements, procedures, methods and law enforcement for the correct and legal operation of a weighbridge.

As well as a host of detailed information, the Weighbridge Operators Manual offers guidance on weighbridge requirements for the following:

  • Location
  • Visibility
  • Approach
  • Platform
  • Pit
  • Electrical or electronic devices
  • Portable weighbridges; and
  • Unattended weighbridges
Some weighbridges are unattended, and in these instances the driver will need to assume responsibility for operating the weighbridge. To address this issue there are innovative automation systems available that will control operation with minimal input from the driver.

The document also includes a weighbridge checklist for inspections, vehicle identification chart and examples of approved format for standard and axle measurement tickets when a weighbridge weighs in tonnes.
