THE National Heavy Vehicle Regulator has this week released its first series of podcasts and fact sheets for the heavy vehicle supply chain as part of a national effort to boost safety for all road users. NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto said earlier this month more than 60 front line heavy vehicle operators and key parties in the logistics supply chain met with the NHVR to test proposed standards for compliance with Chain of Responsibility laws.

Key Takeaways:

  • “There have been cases where poor business practices, delays with loading or incorrectly packing goods has led to pressure on drivers and increased the risk of an incident.
  • “This new material will help make sure that all parties understand their responsibilities and how to go about preventing breaches of mass, dimension, loading, speed, restraint and fatigue laws.
  • Federal Infrastructure and Transport Minister Darren Chester said the new education material for the heavy vehicle supply chain showed that road safety goes well beyond truck drivers.
