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 road transport schedulers or supervisors/managers to administer a fatigue risk management system within the Transport and Logistics industry.

It includes identifying and managing risks associated with fatigue during heavy vehicle driving, operating within a fatigue risk management system, planning trips and updating records, and developing and implementing policies, procedures and strategies to minimise fatigue in the workplace.

Work is performed under limited supervision generally 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 obtaining 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.
