New Guide aims to cut deaths and injury  in high risk public works jobs

In an effort to reduce injuries and fatalities caused by driver fatigue, Pro-Visual Publishing is reminding local government and works officers of the National Heavy Vehicle Driver Fatigue Reforms with the 2010 edition of the National Guide to Public Works & Services Safety.

The new laws, which took effect on 29 September 2008, are consistent with current obligations under OHS laws that require employers and employees to take all reasonably practicable steps to manage driver fatigue.

The safety Guide, which will be distributed in the coming weeks, explores the reasons for the new laws, and details how heavy vehicle drivers and their employees can avoid breeching them.
