Frequently Asked

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.

CoR training is the strategic answer to bridging the knowledge gap within your team. It imparts a deep understanding of HVNL regulations and responsibilities to all supply chain members.

At MAEZ, we inject vitality into what could otherwise be mundane learning. Our interactive training sessions are crafted to engender a robust safety and compliance mindset throughout your team, ensuring that these vital principles are naturally woven into the fabric of their daily duties.

Operational efficiencies gained from compliance can result in significant cost savings.

Moreover, a demonstrated commitment to safety can lead to more favourable terms from clients who value responsible business practices, and it may even result in preferential insurance rates due to a lower risk profile.

CoR training is not merely regulatory compliance—it’s empowering your team with the knowledge and skills to perform their duties confidently and safely.

In fostering their professional development, you create a safer work environment and improve job satisfaction, which translates to higher operational efficacy and a collective commitment to compliance.
