Starting mid-2018, NVHR is stepping up the chain of responsibility regulations throughout Australia and New Zealand. These stricter regulations include:
- On the road offences are not the only thing that you can be fined for. If your current practices and procedures aren't enough to prevent the offences before they happen, anyone in your company's CoR may be liable.
- Higher penalties will be imposed, both monetarily (up to $300,000) or prison time (up to 5 years), based on the severity of the infringement.
- NVHR authorized investigators will be looking for fault reporting procedures and documentation, specifically that "all reasonable steps" have been taken towards compliance and heavy vehicle safety.
Make sure everyone from your drivers to your company director is keeping up with these new requirements well in advance with our Whip Around software.
New and existing CoR requirements are easily met with our software keeping tabs on every step of your inspection process, instantaneously and from anywhere. Drivers can input their DVIRs straight into their smartphones, managers can generate work orders, and teams can be created for another layer of collaboration. Digital records are instantly created for documentation, and you can add photos, GPS stamping, and additional comments for more thorough records. If you are already using our software, update your forms quickly and easily with drag and drop technology.
Meeting these NVHR requirements keeps your whole chain of responsibility safe, and using Whip Around helps you do that. If you have any questions about the new requirements, or about how our software can help you meet them, let us know.
