216   Roll-over protection on tractors
(1)  The person with management or control of a tractor at a workplace must ensure that the tractor is not used unless it is securely fitted with a roll-over protective structure.
Maximum penalty—
(a)  in the case of an individual—$6,000, or
(b)  in the case of a body corporate—$30,000.
(2)  If a tractor is used in a place that is too low for the tractor to work while it is fitted with a roll-over protective structure, the structure may be lowered or removed for the period during which the tractor is used in such a situation (but only if other measures to minimise the risk of roll-over are in place).
(3)  This clause does not apply if the tractor is—
(a)  installed in a fixed position, and in a manner which would no longer permit it to be used as powered mobile plant, or
(b)  a tractor with a mass of less than 560 kilograms or a mass of 15,000 kilograms or more, or
(c)  being used for a historical purpose or activity.
(4)  In this clause—
historical purpose or activity, in relation to the use of a tractor, includes an activity ancillary to a historical activity.
Historical activity: a historical display, parade, demonstration or re-enactment.
Activity ancillary to a historical activity: restoring, maintaining, modifying or housing a tractor used, or to be used, for a historical activity.
roll-over protective structure means a structure designed to protect a tractor operator from injury if the tractor rolls over in any direction.
 Clauses 214 and 215 also apply to a tractor.
