NTC FATIGUE SURVEY
Want to have your say about fatigue laws?
The NTC is collaborating with the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) to establish a national framework for collecting fatigue-related data to provide a solid evidence-base for future decision making.
We are seeking your feedback on what fatigue issues matter to you, and what fatigue data industry is currently collecting and could contribute to a future Fatigue Data Framework.
The scope of the project will be informed through consultation and at this preliminary stage the project scope is broadly framed. It includes
- identifying the relationship between fatigue and current regulations
- measuring the impact and frequency of nose-to-tail shifts on the fatigue risk
- capturing data over longer timeframes.
The survey should take about 15 minutes, and all results are confidential unless you nominate otherwise. The survey will remain open until 27 February 2015.
The ALRTA National Council and Secretariat wish you a safe and merry Christmas and New Year. We know that it is a very busy time of year leading up to the festive season so we hope you are able to take a well-deserved break to catch up with family and friends or just relax with a coldie and the cricket.
If you still need some R&R early in the year, why not come along to the LRTAQ Conference on Moreton Island (19-22 February) or the LBCA in Jindabyne (6-7 March). Whether you like the beach or the bush we have got you covered.
