Chain of Responsibility (CoR)
Level 1 – TLIF0001 Apply chain of responsibility legislation, regulations and workplace procedures
On 1 October 2018, the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) was amended to include Chain of Responsibility (CoR) obligations relating to every party in the heavy vehicle transport supply chain.
The aim of CoR is to make sure everyone in the supply chain shares responsibility for safety and ensuring breaches of the HVNL do not occur. Under CoR laws, if you are named as a party in the chain of responsibility and you exercise (or have the capability of exercising) control or influence over any transport task, you have a responsibility to ensure the HVNL is complied with.
If your role in the heavy vehicle supply chain includes, scheduling, loading/unloading, packing, driving, organising or receiving consignments (e.g. as a consignor or consignee) or you are an employer, executive officer, or prime contractor, then you have CoR obligations under the HVNL.
On completion of this program, participants will receive the nationally recognised Statement of Attainment for:
