CHAIN OF RESPONSIBILITY
As experts in your industry, you know that if you consign, pack, load or receive goods as part of your business, you could be held legally liable for breaches of the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) regardless of whether you have a direct role in driving or operating a heavy vehicle.
Corporate entities, directors, partners and managers are accountable for the actions of people under their control. This is the chain of responsibility (COR).
The aim of COR is to make sure everyone in the supply chain shares equal responsibility for ensuring breaches of the HVNL does not occur. Under COR laws, if you have the capability of controlling or influencing any transport task, you are part of the supply chain and therefore have a responsibility to ensure that all laws are complied with.
Legal liability applies to all parties for their actions or failure to act. Eliminating the risk by using Survive Drive will ensures there’s not any law suits against you.
