Chain of Responsibility on the agenda

This year’s TruckSafe workshop will provide practical information about Chain of Responsibility compliance and enforcement which is set to impose significant changes to the day-to-day operations of trucking operators.

Currently, TruckSafe is the leading program available to the Australian trucking network that assists

operators in managing the risks of road freight at all stages of the supply chain.

“All those who control or influence any aspect of transport operations can be held responsible for

breaches of law,” says TruckSafe National Manager, Mr Ian Johnson.

“We need to better present our services to operators and parties in the supply chain to help them manage the risks.”

Titled TruckSafe — a Business Risk Provider in the Chain of Responsibility, the agenda for the 2007 Auditor Conference and Operator Workshop will encompass the current aims of TruckSafe, and address what it hopes to achieve for its network in the future.

Delegates will be informed on the expectations of its auditors and operators in the context of the

TruckSafe modules including maintenance, fatigue, workplace and driver health, training and


Most importantly, auditors and operators will have the opportunity to use the workshop as an

appropriate environment to assist each other in how to adequately prepare for and manage an audit.

“The trucking industry is constantly dealing with a number of law reforms, and with many significant

changes on the horizon, TruckSafe is focussed on implementing tools that will act in the best possible interests of operators,” Johnson says.

Speakers from National Transport Insurance, VIC Roads and Main Roads WA will also address

delegates on a range of topics.

The workshop will be held on the 13th November at the Moonee Valley Function Centre in Melbourne, in conjunction with the ATA/ARTSA Technical and Maintenance Conference.
