Survey seeks insight into industry’s safety management

Read time: 1 min

The NHVR wants to hear from everyone across the heavy vehicle supply chain — including directors, operators, drivers, loaders, consignors and beyond — about what steps they are taking to manage heavy vehicle safety.

This NHVR survey aims to identify how the heavy vehicle industry and supply chain is tackling their safety responsibilities.

NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto stated that the online safety survey would allow the NHVR to continue to develop programs to support operators to meet their safety duties.

“We are continually pursuing program to improve heavy vehicle safety,” Mr Petroccitto said.

“The past 18 months has seen significant changes with the introduction of safety duties provisions in the Heavy Vehicle National Law, and we want to understand how these changes have impacted everyday safety practices.

“What we learn from the survey will help us decide how best to direct our efforts to further boost safety.”

The NHVR released a range of templates and information through Safety Management Systems in 2018 and endorsed the Registered Industry Code of Practice last year. This follows changes to Chain of Responsibility laws in October 2018.
