ALC summit: NHVR launches supply chain COR survey
Sal Petroccitto seeks broad industry involvement in the survey.

 

A National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) supply chain survey has been launched ahead of a national education campaign about Chain of Responsibility requirements.

NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto tells the Australian Logistics Council’s (ALC’s) annual Supply Chain Safety & Compliance Summit that the online survey will run from September until early October and will take approximately 15 minutes to complete.

"The survey is aimed at both the heavy vehicle industry and the supply chain throughout Australia," Petroccitto says.

"We need all of industry to be involved, so the right information and tools can be developed and delivered to support business education across the national freight task."

The results will be analysed and form the basis of the NHVR’s Chain of Responsibility education program.

The information and guidance material will then be used to assist all supply chain businesses to better understand their heavy vehicle safety obligations and to adopt safe management practices.

The survey forms part of a larger Chain of Responsibility project.

"We are committed to a heavy vehicle industry that delivers the information and tools necessary for managing the ongoing safety and compliance requirements under Chain of Responsibility legislation," Petroccitto says.

"The survey will be available through links on our website and social media channels as well as through the national bodies and individual emails."

ALC MD Michael Kilgariff says the survey will help raise a greater understanding of the supply chain and the vital role it plays for our growing freight industry.

"We congratulate the NHVR for this education initiative and look forward to seeing more industry resources in the future," Kilgariff says.
