Telstra Corporation Ltd.'s Contributions to the NRSPP & Points of Contact

  • Steven StoneFleet Leasing (NSW) & Support Manager

    Who are Telstra?

    Telstra operates one of Australia’s largest fleets with over 10,000 vehicles, including approximately 7,000 operational vehicles. The composition of this fleet is mainly light commercial vehicle but does range from small cars to heavy commercial vehicles including heavy plant.
    Outside of Australia we operate a small fleet of company cars and only a small number of employees drive as part of their role.
    In Australia, Telstra employees also use their personal vehicle for work-related purposes that includes both private vehicles and salary-sacrifice leased vehicles.

    What does road safety mean to Telstra?

    Driver and vehicle safety is one of Telstra’s highest-ranked HSE risks. The primary concern for Telstra is the risk of failure to operate vehicles in accordance with Telstra’s policies and the law, which may result in a fatality or serious injury to employees, contractors or members of the public and property damage.

    Specific risks relate to motor vehicle collisions, speeding, red light infringements, vehicles not being parked properly, driver distraction by technology and driver fatigue. Telstra’s ‘grey fleet’, noted above, presents a number of risks outside of traditional fleet management, including driver licensing and competency, driver demerit points history, vehicle roadworthiness and insurance coverage.

    Our commitment to improving driver and vehicle safety both within Telstra and the wider community is consistent with our organisational values of Show You Care and Better Together, i.e. we need to work not only within our organisation but also the wider community to reduce the risk of road trauma.

    What are Telstra’s NRSPP road safety commitments?

    1. Ongoing thought leadership in relation to driver and vehicle safety given our large fleet and years of experience in fleet operations and managing the associated health and safety risks.
    2. Facilitation and venue support for the NRSPP Steering Committee and working group meetings (e.g. Grey Fleet) as was done in 2017.
    3. Facilitation and venue support for the NRSPP Utilities Forum as was done in 2017.
    4. Commitment, attendance and active participation at all NRSPP Steering Committee and relevant working group and industry forums conducted by the NRSPP as we have done for the Utilities Forum, Grey Fleet and Safer Use of Mobiles in Vehicles projects.
    5. Participation in relevant research activities conducted by ARRB and NRSPP partners.
    6. Increased offering by acting as a focal point for other major telecommunications providers within Telstra including our Tier 1 subcontractors to raise the profile of the NRSPP and the contribution to its efforts from a number of different organisations.
