With major Chain of Responsibility (COR) changes set to take affect in 2018, NatRoad has developed a handbook to help transport operators stay on top of the new laws.

NatRoad industry policy adviser Julia Collins launched the operator-friendly toolkit at the NatRoad Conference this week at Hamilton Island, to help businesses comply with the impending changes to COR.

"Our members told us they’re concerned about the changes to Chain of Responsibility," Collins says.

"For the average business owner, the laws can be complex and overwhelming.

"We are conscious that most of our members are small business operators so we have aimed to keep the handbook simple and to support it with a number of additional checklists and tools.

"It explains how to develop a basic safety management system and how to work with other parties in the chain of responsibility.

"The handbook gives businesses a head-start in applying the changes to their business."

NatRoad plans to support the handbook with a short video and webinar series for members.

More information on the handbook and toolkit will be made available on the NatRoad website.
