What is TruckSafe?
TruckSafe is a world class business and risk management system that is aimed at improving the safety and professionalism of trucking operators nation wide.
It is an industry initiative, which delivers competitive advantages to accredited operators
TruckSafe members achieve accreditation through independent auditing
Members are bound by the TruckSafe Code of Conduct
The integrity of TruckSafe is managed by the TruckSafe Industry Accreditation Council (TIAC)
TruckSafe accreditation is based on a set of minimum standards a trucking business should meet for it to be a safe, responsible operation.
For operators, accreditation shows that they are meeting their due diligence and duty of care.
For customers, TruckSafe provides confidence that operators have responsible work practices, well maintained vehicles, healthy and trained drivers and management systems to meet their transport needs. This also helps customers to meet their due diligence requirements.
TruckSafe accreditation satisfies an increasing trend of customers requiring their suppliers to have risk management systems in place and included in tenders
One of the biggest advantages of being an accredited member of TruckSafe is that our members are externally audited by a third party. These external audits can be used as evidence demonstrating compliance with the TruckSafe Standards which, in turn, provides a strong defence with respect to CoR (within the Heavy Vehicle National Law) and the Master Code.
