Replace your written work diaries with an approved digital electronic work diary solution to meet your fatigue management requirements
In today’s modern transport operation, real-time fatigue information provides the driver and the business with an edge, ensuring the business can be efficient and compliant. Yet traditional fatigue management solutions still require the driver to complete a written work diary, meaning the business is still required to manage a manual workflow.
Teletrac Navman’s Electronic Work Diary is an NHVR-approved fatigue solution that provides the driver the sole source of fatigue information, dispensing with the need to complete a written work diary.Build Your Solution Read Press Release

While drivers may be comfortable with written work diaries, they can be fraught with inaccuracies, and rely on an individual’s interpretation of the fatigue rules, and the understanding and ability to calculate work and rest period requirements.
Depending on a driver’s schedule, the back-office may only lay eyes on written work diary days, or even weeks after jobs are complete, when it’s too late to directly address any problems. Furthermore, keeping track of Australia’s complicated legislation can be a job in itself, especially when it’s constantly being refined – and certain states like Western Australia that have their own fatigue rules, creating confusion for those crossing the border.
These challenges can be overcome with the use of Electronic Work Diaries (EWDs), which deliver a multitude of safety, cost and time-saving benefits. While EWDs have traditionally been used to record work and rest hours in addition to a written work diary. Today, EWD solutions are available and approved by the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) that can be solely used, without a PWD, to manage driver fatigue.
"We’ve seen a huge decrease in fatigue breaches using the Electronic Work Diaries. They let us better keep track of driver hours. We match up the real data with the physical logbooks and the drivers are getting better and better at logging their time and maintaining safe hours.”
Ange Marlow, Administration Manager, Porthaul
Having access to real-time fatigue information across your entire fleet helps you to correctly allocate jobs while allowing appropriate work and rest times. It lets you assign jobs based on available hours and removes the guesswork from your driver’s schedules. This provides a new level of assurance in knowing that your drivers aren’t over worked and will be completing the journey within legal limits.
As a digital solution, EWDs remove the cost of labour-intensive paperwork entirely, as driver information is automatically synced as it’s collected. By reducing the admin involved in manual log book checking it saves your business time and money. It reduces interruption to the driver’s work, and makes processes simpler. Your efforts can be put into more strategic initiatives such as winning new contracts, while further improving safety initiatives.
The same device that delivers you the EWD solution also centralises a variety of tools for drivers, providing a platform where they can complete checklists, receive messages, record progress of jobs and complete necessary forms – all on a single device. It streamlines driver processes and makes life that much simpler!
“The administration side of things has improved 100 per cent. Previously, we were doing double the data entry, as drivers would compile their own information and back-office staff would have to enter it into our systems. Now, this no longer has to be done twice, and staff have more time to concentrate on what they’re supposed to be working on.”
Scott Guthrie, Systems Manager, Mt Noorat Freighters
