Flexibility for drivers using work and rest hours is within reach for many heavy vehicle operators.
NHVR Fatigue Specialist Andreas Blahous said a new Fatigue Choice customer program would assist operators to ensure their business is making the most of existing fatigue laws.
“Applying for AFM does not have to be a difficult process, but does require a commitment by the business and staff to some additional safety measures,” Andreas said.
“From next week the NHVR will be going door-to-door to meet with operators across Australia to discuss their work and rest hour requirements and what options are available.
“Fatigue Choices is our new initiative to help drivers and operators understand and gain access to the options that are available.”
Dates for the first round of the Fatigue Choices program include:
- 16 March – Melbourne, NHVR Offices at Port Melbourne
- 17-18 March – Traralgon at Century Inn
- 19-20 March – Mildura at Mecure Hotel
- 25-26 March – Launceston at NHVR Offices
- 26-27 March – Hobart at Salamanca Inn
