Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1.  This is the first release of this unit of competency in the TLI Transport and Logistics Training Package.

Application

This unit of competency involves the skills and knowledge required for heavy vehicle drivers to manage fatigue and to work safely within the Transport and Logistics industry.

It includes applying fatigue risk management strategies, identifying and acting on signs of fatigue, operating within a fatigue risk management system, planning and navigating trips, updating and maintaining records, complying with work and rest limits, and implementing appropriate strategies to minimise fatigue during work activities.

Work is performed under some supervision as a single operator and/or within a team environment.

Legislative and regulatory requirements are applicable to this unit. The primary legislative requirement of this unit of competency is the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL).

Being awarded this unit of competency is a necessary requirement to operate under National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) Fatigue Management Accreditation but is only one of the criteria. Prospective applicants should check with the NHVR before undertaking training and/or assessment.
