Industry Collaboration

TruckSafe fully supports the reduction or elimination of duplication along with the promoting of safety within the transport industry in line with our vision that everyone in the trucking industry gets home safe, everyday.

TruckSafe and the NHVR have begun a collaboration process on a few projects with the hope of expanding collaboration in the future.

Keep an eye on our progress below.

Industry body TruckSafe and the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) will work together to improve road safety for all Australian truck drivers.

The two organisations are working together to investigate common auditing approaches to help industry and 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.”

TruckSafe Chair, Paul Fellows says it’s 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.”
