The Livestock Transport Fatigue Management Scheme (LTFMS) provides a pre-approved template Advanced Fatigue Management (AFM) accreditation system designed to give livestock transporters the flexibility to respond to the dynamic, uncertain and complex livestock transport task.
The scheme allows AFM accredited operators to work up to 14 hours on a day, as part of a fortnightly cycle with ‘risk off-setting’ restrictions around driving between midnight and 4am and frequent stops for welfare checking.
The implementation guide outlines a step by step process for obtaining AFM accreditation under the scheme and all the necessary policies, procedures and forms on which operators can base their application are provided below. As a pre-approved template, you will not have to present a safety case to the NHVR.
