Does your company have a process in place for assessing Chain of Responsibility (CoR)?

Changes to the Heavy Vehicle National Law are coming in August 2018, and will affect numerous industries across Australia.

 

 

CoR laws:

  • Improve safety
  • Improve compliance
  • Require parties to manage risk
  • Create a level playing field and increase productivity
  • Protect infrastructure
  • Protect against the demands of off-road parties that can lead to breaches of the law
