NHVR video on safety practices

Heavy vehicle supply chain businesses can access information on safety practices from other transport and logistics operators in a new National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) video.

NHVR CEO, Sal Petroccitto, said the latest NHVR video provided first-hand accounts from four heavy vehicle operators and logistics companies about controls and systems they were implementing ahead of changes to Chain of Responsibility (CoR) laws, coming in mid-2018.

“Accessing this kind of information from a range of operators is important for everyone across the heavy vehicle supply chain,” said Petroccitto.

“The feedback shows how different companies are assessing risk, encouraging a safety culture and implementing their safety management systems.

“Under the new CoR laws each business needs to develop tailored solutions that match their business circumstances.”

The video titled Industry Approaches to Safety Management Systems uses feedback from senior logistics and safety staff from Metcash, Woolworths, Branstrans and Martins Transport.

Metcash Chief Logistics Officer, Linda Venables, was one of four leading logistics safety managers who outlined their safety management systems in the video.

“In wanting to take our Chain of Responsibility to the next level I felt it was important to engage the people who actually do the roles,” said Venables.

“The approach was to map all of the controls in CoR and for each site to document where the control was and how they managed it … so there was some sharing of best practice across our sites,” she said.
