Transport Chain of Responsibility
Drivers and operators have traditionally been the focus of road laws. However, breaches are often caused by the actions of others. Under the Chain of Responsibility, complying with transport law is a shared responsibility and the laws are designed to ensure people are responsible if their actions, inactions or demands could contribute to a road safety breach.
All responsible persons should take a risk management approach to their obligations in the Chain of Responsibility. This approach is consistent with other aspects of running a modern and successful business such as managing cash flow, work health and safety and the quality control of goods and services produced.
With over 20 years’ experience in the transport industry, our trainers at ATEL are dedicated to providing the best learning experience for you.
