TruckSafe preparing industry for master code compliance

Road transport safety accreditation scheme, TruckSafe, will release a practical gap-analysis tool to ensure its accredited members are prepared for the new Master Industry Code of Practice it announced today.

Industry members can access the practical gap-analysis tool to help meet their duties under the recent changes to Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) chain of responsibility.

TruckSafe Chair Ferdie Kroon said TruckSafe was safeguarding members and updating its standards to reflect the recent changes.

“We need to make sure the trucking industry is ready. The new standards raise the bar of chain of responsibility compliance and the gap-analysis tool will help ensure existing and new members are covered,” he said.

“The tool has been specially developed to help our members transition their policies and procedures from the current to the new standards,” said Kroon.

Revised TruckSafe standards will be consistent with the clear guidelines outlined for operators in the master code under HVNL.

“The gap-analysis tool will be sent to members in January 2019, ensuring members have plenty of time to make the necessary changes before the new standards are introduced in April at the ATA’s annual Trucking Australia conference,” said Kroon.

“We will also roll out additional supportive tools in 2019 to make the transition as easy and hassle-free as possible,” he said.

“TruckSafe is a world-class business and risk management scheme that gives accredited members confidence they are operating under best-practice systems.”

“TruckSafe also gives customers and the community assurance that operators have responsible work practices, well maintained vehicles, healthy trained drivers and management systems that meet the transport needs.”
