An article posted last week on Australian Transport News announced that Queensland Parliament’s Transportation and Utilities Committee is seeking submissions on amendments to national heavy vehicle and rail safety laws.
The amendment aims to "implement reforms for the national heavy vehicle industry to better align the obligations of chain of responsibility parties and executive officers with national safety laws, improve compliance and simplify enforcements as well as making a number of minor amendments to improve administration of the law".
The changes would introduce a positive duty on COR parties and executive officers to ensure the safety of their operations. Each party in the chain of responsibility would have a primary duty of care, so far as reasonably practicable, to ensure the safety of their transport activities.
