NHVR urges heavy vehicle drivers to carry work diaries in latest educational campaign.
The NHVR is reminding heavy vehicle drivers passing through the Marulan Heavy Vehicle Safety Station (HVSS) in New South Wales to carry their National Written Work Diary (WWD) in its latest campaign launched in early June.
The operation comes as recent data shows over 120 offences recorded in the past few months at Marulan, have resulted in penalty infringements issued to drivers for not carrying their work diary.
When used correctly, work diaries contain evidence of a drivers work and rest hours and can help to ensure that drivers meet their safety and fatigue management obligations in accordance with the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL).
NHVR Director of Operations Central Region Brett Patterson said that the results from Marulan HVSS are alarming and additional measures will be in place in a bid to urge drivers and operators to do the right thing.
