Concrete agitator exemption notice update: NHVR

The concrete agitator alternative rest trial is complete, according to the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR).

The results have been analysed and the work and rest hours exemption notice is set to continue from 1 January 2019.

An assessment by the NHVR and Cement Concrete & Aggregates Australia found no increase in fatigue related incidents during the trial.

The exemption allows a driver of a concrete agitator to take a short work break which is counted towards their rest when the vehicle is stationary, the engine is running and the driver is doing no work other than sitting in the driver’s seat.

The exemption notice will remain in place for three years.

The condition that the driver must carry a copy of the exemption notice in their possession has been removed.
