TruckSafe launches new accreditation standards

Australia’s leading safety accreditation scheme, TruckSafe, has launched its new standards and accreditation guide, giving all parties in the supply chain more confidence of compliance.

TruckSafe’s world-class business and risk management scheme provides accredited members with best-practice systems.

“With the recent changes to the Heavy Vehicle National Law and the newly introduced master industry code of practice, we’ve re-written our standards to give our members confidence of compliance,” TruckSafe Chair Ferdie Kroon said today.

“TruckSafe has built the master code into the 2019 standards to ensure accredited members are compliant with truck safety laws and chain of responsibility requirements,” he said.

Mr Kroon says the revised standards will raise the bar of chain of responsibility compliance and that TruckSafe is committed to ensuring the transition process is as easy and hassle-free as possible.

“TruckSafe has also developed a gap-analysis tool that assists members in their transition from the old standards to the 2019 standards,” Mr Kroon said.

“This tool and the new standards will provide members with easily understandable working procedures and the resources they need to address potential risks.

“TruckSafe accreditation gives customers and the community assurance that operators have responsible work practices, well maintained vehicles, healthy trained drivers, management systems and animal welfare framework that meet their transport needs.”

The 2019 TruckSafe standards are now available for members to download in the TruckSafe online members area.
