This webinar will give you an overview of the ‘Vehicles as a Workplace: Work Health & Safety GuideOpens in new window‘ from a safety, regulatory and industry perspective.
Road traffic injury is the most significant contributor to work related fatalities in Australia and New Zealand.
The Vehicles as a Workplace Guide provides practical risk management guidance for individuals and organisations who use vehicles on public roads for work.
The Guide describes a process for dealing with road traffic hazards in line with work health and safety (WHS) legislation and road traffic safety principles. It covers all vehicle use in road traffic and complements other legislative requirements that apply to businesses whose primary purpose is transport, such as bus, truck or taxi operators.
Following endorsement by Heads of Workplace Safety Authorities, the guide was jointly published in March 2019 by Austroads and WHS regulators from Queensland, New South Wales, Tasmania, South Australia, Northern Territory, Australian Capital Territory and the Commonwealth.
Join in a live Q&A with our expert panel to have your questions answered.
