NRSPP Webinar - Operators Insights: Managing the realities of heavy vehicle speed
Trucks are an essential part of the landscape in Australia, and the demand for freight movement is constantly increasing. Truck operators know that as well as needing to move goods efficiently and promptly, they have a responsibility to ensure the safe use of their vehicles. An essential component of truck safety is the management of vehicle speed.
Travelling faster than a truck’s optimum speed increases fuel use and puts more stress on wearing components, as well as increasing the risk of a crash. If a truck does crash, its high mass means the crash is usually severe. When another vehicle is involved, the results can be tragic.
How do different transport operators manage speed and work with their professional drivers to reduce this risk? Speed is a hot topic and this webinar will bring together three different companies to explore how they work constantly to manage this risk. Join Boral, Scott’s Group of Companies and Simon National Carriers to hear their different approaches to managing speed.
Webinar participants please note - this session will commence at 2:00pm AEST (Australian Eastern Daylight Savings Time). There may be time zone differences that apply. It is recommended that you connect to the webinar 15 minutes prior to allow sufficient time for potential connection delay.
