As a loading manager, you could be held legally liable for breaches of the HVNL even though you have no direct role in driving or operating a heavy vehicle. If your actions, inactions or demands cause or contribute to an offence, you can be held legally accountable.
Under the HVNL, safety systems and controls (such as safe work practices, training and procedures) should be in place to prevent breaches of the HVNL, manage risk and maintain a safe road environment.
DIGI CLIP can help with CoR and WHS compliance with an app-based load checking system that will help identify breaches and cloud-based software to log, communicate and track corrective actions.
DIGI CLIP is designed to free transport, industrial & frontline workers from paper clipboards & spreadsheets. Safety & quality checklists & safe operating checklists are completed, communicated & archived from the DIGI CLIP mobile app.
