The “Chain of Responsibility” in Australian transport law refers to a legal concept that extends the accountability of adherence to transport laws beyond the drivers, to include every person in the supply chain who has influence over transport activities.
This law is part of the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL), and its purpose is to ensure safety in road transport operations. The Chain of Responsibility recognizes that multiple parties may be responsible for conditions and actions that affect road safety, not just the driver.
Everyone in the supply chain – including consignors, consignees, loaders, schedulers, packers, freight forwarders, operators, drivers, receivers, and employers – has a legal obligation to ensure breaches of road transport laws do not occur.
Parties in the Chain of Responsibility are required to demonstrate they have taken all reasonable steps to prevent a breach of the law. If they fail to do so, they can be held legally accountable for breaches of the HVNL. The Chain of Responsibility provisions are based on the concept that if you are part of the transport supply chain, no matter what your role, you are responsible for road safety.
Chain of Responsibility (CoR) training refers to specific educational programs designed to familiarize individuals with the CoR laws and their obligations under these laws. This is particularly relevant in the context of Australian transport law, as discussed previously.
CoR training can be taken by anyone who is part of the logistics and supply chain, such as managers, supervisors, fleet owners, loaders, drivers, etc. The purpose of this training is to ensure that everyone in the supply chain understands their roles and responsibilities under the CoR laws and how to manage risks and improve safety.
Training is an essential part of ensuring a safe transport task. MAEZ’s online, 24/7 available, interactive training programs would be a key asset for any business needing to improve its understanding and implementation of HVNL.
Under the HVNL, businesses need to ensure the safety of their transport tasks. The SMS system, such as CoRGuard offered by MAEZ, would be critical for clients to manage safety risks, document incidents, streamline operations, and provide ongoing support.
A risk management plan is a document that outlines the steps that a business will take to manage the risks associated with transporting goods or people. The plan should include a risk assessment, a list of controls, and a process for monitoring and reviewing the plan.
For businesses seeking to obtain new business or expand, having scalable systems and practices in place that can grow as the business grows is crucial. MAEZ’s standardized and scalable services would be very appealing to any business looking to fix compliance costs.
