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 business owners and agents of heavy vehicle drivers to oversee and operate a fatigue risk management system within the Transport and Logistics industry.

It includes identifying legal requirements, responsibilities and liabilities for establishing and/or improving fatigue risk management implementation plans; operating within a fatigue risk management system; and managing operations.

It also includes communicating; updating records, policies and procedures; acting appropriately on reports and identified breaches of fatigue management regulations; and ensuring operational systems are compliant with fatigue management regulations and policy.

Agents of heavy vehicle drivers and/or business owners are defined as a ‘relevant party’ under Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL), with responsibility for operating policies and procedures; human resources and contract provisions; and arrangements for managing safety and fatigue risk management.

Legislative and regulatory requirements are applicable to this unit. The primary legislative requirement of this unit of competency is HVNL.

This unit is also intended for road transport business owners and agents of heavy vehicle drivers who in future may be required to satisfy National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) Fatigue Management Accreditation legislative requirements. Prospective applicants should check with the NHVR before undertaking training and/or assessment.
