LINK Community Transport’s safety system mandates that to transport clients in wheelchairs, the size of the chair must comply with Australian Standards for Wheelchair Occupant Restraint Assemblies for Motor Vehicles, 1994.
We are unable to transport clients in wheelchairs that do not comply with the standards.
For clients being transported in the wheelchair, the chair will be secured with the restraints provided. Although the chair will be secured, the client will also be required to wear the provided seat belt.
Volunteers are not permitted to manually lift a client in or out of their wheelchair. Clients who do require assistance with transfer need to discuss their requirements with a member of the Client Services Team prior to travel.
