TruckSafe and the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) are currently investigating common auditing approaches to inform the development of a national auditing standard being pursued as part of the Heavy Vehicle National Law Review.
NHVR Sal Petroccitto said it was important for the NHVR and industry to collaborate on safety and productivity improvements.
“We are happy to be working more closely with TruckSafe to promote road safety. Together with industry, we hope to progress a safer, more productive heavy vehicle industry, while reducing the regulatory burden,” he said.
TruckSafe Chair, Paul Fellows called it a welcome and logical move. “Ultimately TruckSafe and the NHVR have the same aim for a safe industry. We’re hoping to start with driver health because our industry’s most important asset is our drivers.”
