National regulator launches safety survey


Responses to help development of future education and guidance materials

National regulator launches safety survey
Geoff Casey says the survey will measure how the industry manages safety

 

The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) has launched a safety survey as regulatory changes loom.

The NHVR is to use feedback from a new safety survey to measure how the industry manages safety and provide an update on preparations for changes to Chain of Responsibility laws later this year.

NHVR productivity and safety executive director Geoff Casey says the NHVR Industry Safety Survey results would also assist in informing the development of future education and guidance materials.

"A primary focus for the NHVR is the development of a regulatory framework which will support the heavy vehicle industry to take responsibility for managing their risks to deliver safety outcomes," Casey adds.

"As part of this process, the NHVR has engaged independent survey and research company Insync to provide an update into the way the heavy vehicle industry currently manages its safety responsibilities.

"No matter what your role in the heavy vehicle industry, we want to hear from you through the survey, which will take about 10 minutes to complete."

The survey was launched today and will close May 9. All responses to the survey are anonymous.
