Issue 137 | 13 April 2022This Easter is anticipated to be one of the busiest periods on our roads, with some predictingpre-pandemic traffic levels.Road safety is critical for everyone travelling during the Easter holiday period.We have released a series of Easter safety videos, with operators sharing their tips for caravanners and light vehicle drivers on how to drive safely with heavy vehicles. I encourage you to share these videos with your friends and family, so we can ensure everyone has a safe and efficient Easter.To industry, make sure you check in with one another and get quality rest. For those taking a break, enjoy time spent with family and friends.I wish you all a safe and happy Easter.Sal, CEOEaster travel restrictionsSome states and territories may have travel restrictions in place over the Easter holiday period for agricultural, oversize/overmass and special purpose heavy vehicles.For vehicles operating under a permit, operators should check the permit’s conditions to establish whether Easter or public holiday travel restrictions are listed or are referenced in related notices.All heavy vehicles are subject to conditions of access under their relevant notice or permit.> Click here for more information about access over the Easter holiday periodCompanies receive Improvement Notices to rectify fatigue breachesTwo companies have recently been issued with Improvement Notices by the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR).An NHVR investigation identified multiple work diary, work hours and fatigue issues, and both companies failed to provide adequate fatigue compliance training and appropriate scheduling for their employees. Under the Improvement Notices, both companies must take corrective action and deliver activities including formal training, weekly and fortnightly audits, revised scheduling, Driver Safe Journey Plans, and non-conformance policies, to prevent further breaches. NHVR Director of Investigations Steve Underwood said immediate action must be taken by both companies after they put their drivers and the wider community at risk.“An improvement notice enables the offenders to improve their safety and compliance systems quickly, with the NHVR monitoring the required notice activities to remedy the situation,” Steve said.> Read the improvement notices article hereJoin the thousands of operators reaping NHVAS safety and productivity benefitsMore than 8,100 operators across Australia are enjoying the multiple benefits the National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme (NHVAS) has to offer.Chief Operations Officer Paul Salvati said scheme membership provided a competitive edge, productivity gains and significant safety benefits.“Whether you’re a business or a single-vehicle owner-operator, you can use the NHVAS as your pathway to safer transport activities, regardless of the business sector you’re operating in,” Paul said.“If you’re a subcontractor with NHVAS membership, companies know they’re engaging someone with an auditable safety management system that makes their operations safer, and that you’re serious about meeting your primary duty requirements.“You can also get productivity benefits from being NHVAS Mass Management accredited, as it allows you to operate at Concessional Mass Limits for general access to the road network, meaning you can carry more each trip and reduce the number of trips you make.Maintenance Management record-keeping gives operators a clear picture of possible vehicle replacement needs. Their investment into newer, safer vehicles reduces vehicle downtime, with more time spent on the road and less over inspection pits, while getting accredited in Basic or Advanced Fatigue Management lets you operate under more flexible work and rest hours.Also, recent changes to the scheme see even more safety management system activities included.“Once you have NHVAS accreditation, it’s easy to build on it by using the NHVR’s 9 Step SMS Roadmap to make your safety management system even more comprehensive,” Paul said.For more information about joining the NHVAS, visit nhvr.gov.au/nhvasOzHelp partner with Coles Supply Chain to deliver their Health in Gear programLeading suicide prevention organisation, the OzHelp Foundation (OzHelp), has announced that its industry tailored Health in Gear program will be delivered to inbound drivers at Coles Distribution Centres.The partnership will cover 10 Coles distribution centres nationally and focuses on supporting the health and wellbeing of primary freight truck drivers, by delivering health checks and wellbeing support.OzHelp’s pilot Health in Gear program was co-funded by the NHVR’s Heavy Vehicle Safety Initiative supported by the Federal Government, with contributions from OzHelp and industry partners.> Click here to read more about the Coles partnershipTransferring a Performance Based Standards vehicleIf you have purchased a second-hand Performance Based Standards (PBS) combination and would like to transfer the PBS Vehicle Approval (VA) into your company’s name, please follow these steps: 1. Fill out a PBS Vehicle Approval (VA) transfer application form.2. Provide proof of vehicle ownership of all vehicles being transferred such as certificates of registration or purchasing invoices. The proof of vehicle ownership must include the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and the company name.3. Email the completed form along with proof of vehicle ownership to the PBS email box email@example.com with ‘VA Transfer Request’ in the email subject line.It’s important to note PBS vehicles are approved as a combination.Individual vehicles forming part of a combination cannot be transferred individually. For example, a truck and dog transfer application must contain at least one truck VIN and one dog trailer VIN, and both VINs must be listed on the original VA.Got questions? Email us firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Attn PBS’ in the email subject line.Routing made easier with new mapping toolOperators now have access to easier and more accurate route planning with the release of the NHVR’s next generation route planner.Program Director David Carlisle said the improved mapping tool was the next step towards the NHVR delivering a nationally consistent, intelligent route planning platform for the heavy vehicle industry.“The new route planner incorporates design specifically for heavy vehicle travel, which will help operators plot more accurate heavy vehicle routes, minimise routing errors and reduce the time it takes to plan a journey,” David said.“Road data can be updated on the map in near real time, meaning operators won’t need to rely on notes, modifications or drawings to their permit applications.“And the downloadable routing feature captures historic routing information for operators to use in their own spatial systems and view all approved routes on a single map.“We know accurate and consistent route planning is essential for safe and productive operations, so this is great step towards making this process easier for industry.“We’ll continue to work with operators, road managers and jurisdictions to make further improvements over the next twelve months, moving towards a single national network map that supports dynamic heavy vehicle networks.”The Next Generation Route Planner is available now in the NHVR Portal.> Click here to learn more about the new route plannerNSW floodsFlooding in Sydney and surrounding areas will see some heavy vehicles driving on weather impacted roads that could pose a significant risk to drivers, vehicles, and other road users.

Issue 135 | 17 March 2022It’s deeply saddening to see the impact the recent rain and flash-flooding has had on northern New South Wales and areas closer to Sydney and surrounds. Please continue to check in with loved ones and stay safe.Please also be aware of the safety of your heavy vehicle. Below you'll find some useful tips for assessing the safety of your heavy vehicle after driving through water, mud, debris or along roads being used as a diversion.In a significant win for road safety, the Commonwealth have announced Automated Emergency Braking and Electronic Stability Control will be required for all new heavy vehicles from November 2023. The uptake of this technology has significant safety benefits, such as preventing rear-end crashes and rollovers, and was a key goal outlined in the National Road Safety Action Plan 2018-2020.We will continue to work with the Commonwealth, state and territory transport agencies, and industry to maximise the benefits of the mandated technology to progress a safe, productive, and efficient heavy vehicle industry.Sal, CEOA daily check for post flood vehiclesOperating a heavy vehicle during extreme weather conditions, such as those recently experienced in South Australia, Queensland and NSW, can have mechanical impacts.It’s important to adjust your vehicle’s maintenance system to match. The NHVR has released a list of tips and hints to use when assessing the safety of your heavy vehicle after driving through water, mud, debris or along roads being used as a diversion.The list covers checking for leaks, brakes, the rapid component cooling and electrical systems. Click here for the full list.These tips are general, and the NHVR also recommends you contact the vehicle or component manufacturer or your regular maintenance provider after using roads impacted by flooding.And remember, if it’s flooded, forget it.Faulty truck fatality: Charges laid against SA cement company and executiveCharges have been laid against a cement company and its executives following an eight-month investigation led by South Australia Police, where a heavy vehicle driver was killed in Piccadilly on 12 October 2020.It is alleged that the South Australian company, its owner/Managing Director, and another manager knew the heavy vehicle was defective but allowed it to be used on the road. They have been charged with Category 1, 2 and 3 offences under the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL).“Companies and executives must ensure the safety of their transport activities. If they ignore their responsibilities under the HVNL, they will be held to account,” NHVR Director of Prosecutions Belinda Hughes said.> Click here to read about the chargeCharges against company and directorThe NHVR has filed charges against a transport company and its Director/Administration Manager.South Australia Police commenced an investigation following a fatal crash involving a car and a road train, killing a woman, on the Augusta Highway near Red Hill on 27 December 2020.Based on the investigation by the South Australia Police Heavy Vehicle Enforcement Unit, category 2 charges have been laid under the Heavy Vehicle National Law.NHVR Director of Prosecutions Belinda Hughes said, “Companies and their executives must comply with their obligations to ensure the safety of their drivers, vehicles and transport activities.”The matter is listed for a first mention in the Adelaide Magistrates’ Court on 22 April 2022.Do I need a permit? guidesWe have released two new pages on the NHVR website that address the commonly asked question: “Do I need a permit?”General Access Vehicle (GAV), andDo I need a permitThe new General Access Vehicle page provides improved guidance on the types of eligible vehicles and combinations that qualify as GAVs. A GAV doesn’t require a permit or notice to operate on the road network.After confirming their vehicle is a Restricted Access Vehicle (RAV) – rather than General Access – RAV operators are stepped through:how to find out whether there’s an applicable access notice that covers their routeroute planning, to check which road networks have approved routes and which require a permit, andif there isn’t a notice, the type of permit applicable to their vehicle class.Join us in celebrating Harmony DayThe NHVR is proud to support the upcoming Harmony Day event on Sunday 20 March from 11am-4pm at the Liverpool Catholic Club (Green Oval) in Prestons.The inaugural event, hosted by truck drivers Amar Singh and Mike Williams, will promote multiculturalism, with information stalls, food and entertainment.

Issue 136 | 29 March 2022The Easter school holiday period is fast approaching, and it’s an important time to think about road safety for everyone travelling on our roads.I urge everyone to chat to their mates about how they can make our roads safer for heavy vehicle drivers.If you have a mate who is taking their caravan on the road this Easter, remind them and encourage them to talk to their other mates about the importance of leaving space at rest stops for heavy vehicle drivers who rely on these spots to manage their fatigue.Or if you have a mate who’s an L or P plater, or a light vehicle driver – point them to our Don’t #uck With A Truck or We Need Space campaigns. Explain to them the importance of leaving space for heavy vehicles to turn or brake, and why patience is critical when overtaking.The more your mates understand about heavy vehicle safety, the safer our roads will be this Easter.Keep an eye on our social media channels for more videos and information over the Easter break.Have a safe and happy Easter, wherever you’re travelling.Sal, CEOBustle EWD seventh to get NHVR green lightThe National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) has approved a seventh Electronic Work Diary (EWD) option, with Bustle Technology’s EWD now available.NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto said operators are starting to reap the benefits of EWDs – and not just through better fatigue management and driver safety, but also though productivity gains.“For example, Bustle’s EWD complements its existing end-to-end Transport Management System solution, which includes compliance, workshop, operations and finance modules,” Sal said.“By wrapping as many solutions as possible into their software and aligning it with the Industry Master Code of Practice, Bustle is enabling transport operators to run compliant operations with fewer systems.> Click here to read the full Bustle EWD articleRegulatory Advice addresses the risks of alcohol and drug impairmentThe NHVR has released new regulatory advice on managing the risks associated with alcohol and other drug use in the workplace.This latest regulatory advice is aimed at both heavy vehicle operators and other parties in the Chain of Responsibility (CoR) and their executives.An employee’s fitness for duty is fundamental to safety and is a critical factor in a heavy vehicle business’s duty to ensure the safety of its transport activities.In addition to the obvious safety hazards to drivers, workers, other road users and the general public, workers impaired by alcohol or drugs (including prescribed prescription medications) can also impact a business’s ability to meet its lawful HVNL and workplace health and safety obligations.This new guidance from the NHVR explains who has a lawful duty to manage these risks and offers proactive suggestions for heavy vehicle businesses wanting to get ahead of the issue and develop an alcohol and drug impairment risk management plan.Read the new regulatory advice here.More regulatory advice will be released in the coming weeks and industry is encouraged to provide feedback via the NHVR website.South-West Victoria Livestock Exchange effluent disposal pit underwayThe Australian Livestock and Rural Transporters Association (ALRTA) is partnering with Warrnambool City Council to establish a livestock effluent disposal pit at Warrnambool’s South-West Victoria Livestock Exchange (SWVLX).ALRTA President Scott McDonald said managing effluent in transit was a significant challenge for ALRTA’s members.“Effluent capture tanks installed on purpose-built livestock trailers do a reasonable job of containment however there is a consequential need for transporters to access suitable facilities for effluent disposal when tanks become full in transit and at ‘end of journey’ facilities,” Scott said.The project is funded by the NHVR’s Heavy Vehicle Safety Initiative, supported by the Federal Government.> Click here to read more about the siteRegister now for your free Fatigue Choices consultationThe next round of our popular Fatigue Choices program is now open to operators who wish to learn more about flexible fatigue management options for their business.The program includes free, one-on-one consultations where operators can discuss their fatigue management options with a member of the NHVR’s Fatigue and Human Factors team.NHVR Fatigue Specialist Andreas Blahous said the program would help operators ensure their business was making the most of existing fatigue laws.“With revised Fatigue Management Standards now in place, it’s a perfect opportunity for operators to consider Advanced Fatigue Management to achieve greater flexibility with work and rest hours,” Andreas said.“Applying for AFM doesn’t have to be a difficult process, but it does require a commitment by the business and staff to some additional safety measures.“Our Fatigue Choices sessions are conducted online, take less than an hour, and there’s nothing operators need to do to prepare.”Sessions will be available until the end of April and book out quickly, so please register your interest here.Grape expectations this harvest seasonThe NHVR is reminding operators of heavy vehicles transporting grapes to pay attention to their mass, loading, fatigue and work and rest hour requirements under the Heavy Vehicle National Law.The reminder comes after grape spillage was found at major intersections and heavy vehicles transporting grapes inspected by NHVR’s Safety and Compliance Officers were found to be non-compliant.Find out more about having a safe and fruitful grape seasonAlways load to legalOperators must also remember the nationally agreed mass measurement adjustment process only applies when an authorised officer weighs a heavy vehicle for compliance purposes.Mass measurement adjustment makes it fairer when your vehicle’s being weighed, as different weighing equipment, measuring methods, inspection sites and surrounding conditions may impact slightly on the measurement outcomes.Mass measurement adjustment isn’t a tolerance – and it doesn’t mean you can allow yourself that little bit extra when you’re calculating the mass of your load. If you do, you’ll be over your mass limit, and that’s an offence!For more information, visit the NHVR’s Measurement adjustment webpageIndustry eventsStay up to date with industry events and forums.

Issue 134 | 2 March 2022Over the last week we’ve seen intense rainfall and flash-flooding devastate parts of Queensland and northern New South Wales. Our thoughts are with the families and friends of those who have lost their lives, and anyone whose home or property has been impacted.As a nation we continue to be challenged, and I’m always proud to see the community come together with emergency services to help save lives and livelihoods. As this weather system moves south, I urge everyone to follow the advice and remain safe.I’d like to thank the heavy vehicle industry for continuing to prioritise safety as a large number of roads and bridges remain closed across Queensland and New South Wales. Conditions on the network are continuing to change, so I urge all operators to plan their journey and take steps to ensure safe travel when operating in and around affected areas.In this edition of On the Road, we’ve provided advice about safely accessing flood-affected areas, and we have a dedicated webpage with useful links that will help operators stay up to date with local conditions.As always, if you need network access assistance, you can contact our team on 13 NHVR (13 6487).Stay safe, and please remember – if it’s flooded, forget it!Sal, CEOHeavy vehicle access across flood-affected areasHeavy vehicle operators should take the following steps when accessing flood-affected areas.Check the local road conditions through state road manager websites. A list of websites with the latest information about road conditions can be found here.If travelling in an affected area, check with local emergency services or recovery operations.Ensure your vehicle is able to travel on the existing network. If you’re travelling outside of these networks, you may need to obtain a permit through the NHVR Portal or call 13 NHVR (13 64 87) for assistance. Avoid using back tracks or off-network roads to get around road closures.Helping prevent executive CoR safety failuresThe NHVR has accepted an enforceable undertaking (EU) from two former directors of ex-mining company Goondicum Resources, Mark McCauley and Jonathan Mattiske. It is a reminder to other executives who fail to meet their Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) obligations.The EU stems from an NHVR investigation into the company’s safety policies and procedures, following the death of a haulage contractor on 17 May 2019 at Monto in Queensland.NHVR Director of Prosecutions Belinda Hughes said the directors were charged with failing to exercise due diligence to ensure safe transport activities.“As part of the EU, the directors will pay for the development of a due diligence manual for executives to understand their obligations in the Chain of Responsibility under the HVNL,” Belinda said.> To read more about the EU, click hereNHVR accepts first sole trader enforceable undertaking from Victorian farmerThe NHVR has accepted its first enforceable undertaking (EU) from a Victorian sole trader and farmer after he failed to comply with his vehicle’s mass requirements when transporting potatoes.An investigation by NHVR’s Safety and Compliance Officers found that on 17 July 2020 the steer axle of the heavy vehicle owned by Gavin Bone weighed 8850kg – 147% over the allowed limit of 6000kg.NHVR Director of Prosecutions Belinda Hughes said this EU demonstrates how this alternative avenue to prosecution could be effective for small operators.“An EU is designed so that instead of paying fines it's instead spent on improving safety,” Belinda said.“In this case, we determined that more safety benefits would be achieved from an EU, for both Mr Bone and the wider farming industry.” Under the EU, Mr Bone must complete a personalised mass management course and share his learnings with the farming community in a paid advertisement in Seed Potatoes Victoria annual guide.> Find out more about the sole trader EUNew web content provides helpful legal resourcesNew information and resources are now available on the NHVR website for heavy vehicle operators and others in the Chain of Responsibility on what to expect if they have to attend court.The information provides a step-by-step, common-sense approach for anyone unfamiliar with legal proceedings on topics like how to prepare for court, tips when attending court, how to lodge an appeal and understanding common legal terms.> Explore the new legal proceedings web pages hereDon’t risk a rollover when transporting hay balesThe NHVR is reminding operators of heavy vehicles and heavy vehicle combinations transporting round hay bales to restrain bales safely and in compliance with the loading requirements in the Heavy Vehicle National Law.The reminder comes after an increased number of heavy vehicles inspected by NHVR’s Safety and Compliance Officers found round hay bales were not adequately secured or were not secured using an appropriate restraint method. Poorly loaded or inadequately restrained loads can cause hay bales to dislodge or fall, posing a significant safety risk to workers and other road users. > For more information on how to restrain bales safely, click hereHealthy Heads hits the road with major mental health initiativeHealthy Heads in Trucks & Sheds (HHTS) has today launched the Roadshow; a mental health outreach program to support the health and wellbeing of the heavy vehicle industry and supply chain.Developed by PACCAR Australia, its dealers and the Australian Trucking Association, the Roadshow will provide tailored resources and practical mental health advice to truck drivers, and warehouse and distribution centre staff at 18 industry events across the country in 2022.NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto said with close to half a million heavy vehicles on our roads, improving the mental health and wellbeing of everyone in the industry was a priority for the NHVR, and pivotal in keeping all road users safe.The Roadshow is funded by the NHVR’s Heavy Vehicle Safety Initiative, supported by the Federal Government.Cancellation of temporary variation to Queensland Police Service escorting arrangementsWith the reopening of Queensland's borders to interstate and overseas travellers, traffic on the state's roads is returning to pre-COVID-19 levels.To ensure the safety of all road users, the temporary escort variation implemented in Queensland in October 2021 for Class 1 Oversize and Overmass movements not exceeding 5.5m wide and 35m long will end atmidnight on Friday 4 March. Operators must then go back to following the escort conditions in their NHVR-issued permit.Supplementary access noticesThe National Class 3 Supplementary Access (Western Australia Assistance) Exemption Notice 2022 (No.2) is extended until 13 March 2022 to allow increased freight capacity on alternative road networks between South Australia to Western Australia. > Click here for more information on the supplementary access noticesConsider a career with the NHVRWe value staff with a genuine belief in the work they do and the benefit it will bring.www.nhvr.gov.au/careersConnect with us on social media Having troubles viewing this email?
