Managing the hazards and risks associated with heavy vehicles in the construction industry is the latest subject in the NHVR’s new regulatory advice series.
Based on reports from compliance officers and the 2021 National Roadworthiness Survey, heavy vehicles have an observed pattern of non-compliance when used in construction activities.
As projects pick up across the country, the NHVR will be increasing its safety and compliance activities, with a focus on Chain of Responsibility (CoR) in the construction industry.
The regulatory advice explains the CoR laws and is tailored to address the concerns of industry executives as well as heavy vehicle operators.
For construction company or construction contractor executives: read ‘Managing the risks of heavy vehicle transport activities in the construction industry – Principal Contractor’
For construction heavy vehicle operators and their executives: read ‘Managing the risks of heavy vehicle transport activities in the construction industry – Operators’
