TruckSafe accreditation is based on a set of minimum standards a trucking business should meet for it to be a safe, responsible operation. Accreditation shows that operators are meeting their due diligence and duty of care.
TruckSafe provides clients with confidence that contractors have responsible work practices, well maintained vehicles, healthy and trained drivers and management systems to meet their transport needs. Trucksafe also enables customers to meet their due diligence requirements.
TruckSafe offers 4 key standards:
- Management – is aimed at ensuring that a trucking operator has a documented business system that covers each of the standards.
- Maintenance – is aimed at ensuring vehicles and trailers are kept in a safe and roadworthy condition. This standard also covers the requirements for daily checks, fault reporting and recording, fault repair, scheduled maintenance, maintenance records and documentation, maintenance responsibilities, internal review, and maintenance training and education. TruckSafe maintenance also complies with NHVAS maintenance standards.
- Workplace and Driver Health – is aimed at providing tools to ensure that drivers are fit and healthy and working within a supportive safety environment. This standard covers requirements for Workplace Health, Driver Health Screening (including medicals), the obligations of the medical practitioner, rehabilitation and fatigue management. Implementation of the fatigue management elements will help you to achieve future fatigue management accreditation as well as involve your staff in addressing fatigue management at both a personal and business level.
- Training – is aimed at ensuring that drivers are equipped with the skills and licensed, authorised and trained for the tasks that they are undertaking.
