This Nationally recognised course is designed for all drivers (Heavy Vehicle and White fleet) to provide an understanding of Work Health & Safety laws, includes a general duty of care and this applies in road traffic when a vehicle is used for work-related purposes.

Introduction:

This Nationally recognised course is designed for all drivers (Heavy Vehicle and White fleet). WHS law includes a general duty of care and this applies in road traffic when a vehicle is used for work-related purposes. Unfortunately, more Australians have died in vehicle collisions than World War I, World War II and the Vietnam War combined. (Using 2014 Statistics, 180,000 Australians have died in car crashes). In 2014, road accidents could be attributed to 45% of deaths of young people aged 17-25, with $27 billion the estimated cost of car accidents in Australia per year.

The responsibility to provide and manage safe workplaces whenever workers use vehicles for work could include the following situations:
  • Vehicles owned, leased or hired by the organisation as work vehicles
  • Vehicles owned, leased or hired by the organisation for private use but which are incidentally used in the course of work (for example vehicles included in salary packaging arrangements)
  • Vehicles operated by other organisations, which their workers use, either as drivers or passengers
  • Vehicles owned or leased by workers that are used in the course of their work, either regularly or from time to time (referred to as “grey fleet” vehicles), and
  • Public transport vehicles, including trains, buses, taxis and ride share vehicles
WHS legislation does not distinguish between vehicles which an organisation directly owns or leases, and other vehicles. The degree of responsibility and what is reasonably practicable will depend on the extent of control or influence the duty holder has to eliminate or minimise the risk.

Upon successful completion of this course, participants will be issued with a Nationally recognised Skill Set:
  • TLIF0078 Recognise motor vehicle road crash risks and post-crash actions
  • TLIF0075 Demonstrate awareness of interacting with other road users
  • TLIC1051 Operate commercial vehicle
