Heavy vehicle accreditation scheme TruckSafe has a new standards and accreditation guide, reflecting changes to the Heavy Vehicle National Law [HVNL] and the newly introduced industry master code of practice. 

TruckSafe’s business and risk management scheme has built the master code into the 2019 standards to ensure accredited members are compliant with truck safety laws and chain of responsibility requirements.

TruckSafe chair Ferdie Kroon says the revised standards will increase chain of responsibility compliance and is committed to ensuring the transition process is as hassle-free as possible.

"With the recent changes to the Heavy Vehicle National Law [HVNL] 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 says. 

A gap-analysis tool has also been developed to assist members in their transition from the old standards to the 2019 standards. 

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

"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."
