Fatigue is also known as a silent killer. It impairs decision making, affects performance, slows reaction times and reduces the ability to control emotions.
In 2020, 8% of all truck large losses in Australia were caused by fatigue. NRSPP has developed the second Heavy Vehicle Toolbox Talk: Fatigue, to combat this risk for heavy vehicle drivers.
The talk features interviews with drivers from BINGO Industries, Holcim and TOLL. Each give their own tips and stories on fatigue, but ultimately share the same message: Driver fatigue is deadly, know the signs.
A fact sheet, poster, facilitator guide, overview and PowerPoint are also included. The fact sheets are available in three different versions, depending on the audience. One is targeted towards drivers, one towards companies and the other includes all the information.
The Toolbox Talk is designed to be flexible so your organisation can present or distribute it as you see fit.
The package was peer reviewed by industry experts to ensure it is relevant, accurate and delivered in a way that will engage drivers. This information is sourced from a combination of industry bodies and scholarly texts.
The HVTBT project is delivered thanks to key funding provided through the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator’s (NHVR) Heavy Vehicle Safety Initiative, supported by the federal government.
NRSPP thanks its industry working group, which consists of BINGO Industries, ComfortDelGro Australia, Heavy Vehicle Association of Australia, Holcim, Monash University Accident Research Centre, Qube, Swinburne University, Toll Global Express, Toll Group, Viva Energy and Zurich Insurance.
