NatRoad meets with Shadow Minister for Transport

National Road Transport Association (NatRoad) CEO, Warren Clark, recently spoke with Shadow Minister for Infrastructure, Transport, Cities and Regional Development, Anthony Albanese, in regards to Chain of Responsibility (CoR).

The new CoR laws that commence 1 October 2018 were reportedly discussed, with NatRoad indicating its ongoing opposition to the reinstatement of the Road Safety Remuneration Tribunal.

NatRoad said in a statement that the CoR reforms could be expanded so that all parties in the chain of responsibility who have influence or control over the transport task are subject to the expanded, positive duties.

“We also spoke about the upcoming review of the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) where NatRoad wants greater accord with the harmonised work health and safety laws,” said Clark. 

“We would like to see bipartisan support for changes to the HVNL which is in urgent need of reform. CoR strengthening will be an important part of what NatRoad advocates in the context of the HVNL review,” he said.
