New booklet sets out fatigue management strategies
NHVR fatigue specialist Andreas Blahous said the new booklet would provide simple information for operators seeking access to more flexible work and rest hours.
“This booklet provides an introduction to some core aspects of AFM including information about the key benefits, requirements and application process,” he said.
“There are currently more than 50 AFM accredited operators across Australia and we want to see those numbers grow through making the process simpler and promoting the benefits.”
Earlier this year, as part of a new application toolkit, the NHVR released the first in a series of AFM booklets, showing examples of operating limits and countermeasures that are currently in use.
Access to flexibility, fatigue risk management and the NHVR’s response to the Heavy Vehicle National Law Review (HVNL) were key topics for the Sydney forum.
“Fatigue reform is one of the most critical areas for reform as part of the HVNL Review and it’s one of the most discussed topics when we meet with drivers and businesses,” Mr Blahous said.
