SCRt CIWG - Chain of Responsbility

SIRF Roundtables presents
Supply Chain Roundtable
Common Interest Workgroup
Chain of Responsibility
Proudly Hosted by Austral Bricks
SIRF Roundtables in New South Wales currently comprises in excess of 40 progressive organisations that are willing to network and share their best practices in a peer to peer learning environment, specialising in Operational Excellence and Industrial Maintenance.

The ‘Common Interest Work Group’ (CIWG) events are for operators/technical specialists looking to discuss with peers, specific topics they are working on, in and around their field of excellence.
Last year we started the discussion on Chain of Responsibility.
Many companies were just starting their policy implementation at that time. It is perhaps a good time to revisit and discuss

If you consign, pack, load or receive goods as part of your business, you could be held legally liable for breaches of the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) even though you have no direct role in driving or operating a heavy vehicle. In addition, corporate entities, directors, partners and managers are accountable for the actions of people under their control. This is the ‘Chain of Responsibility’ (COR).

Under COR laws if you exercise (or have the capability of exercising) control or influence over any transport task, you are part of the supply chain and therefore have a responsibility to ensure the HVNL is complied with.

The law recognises that multiple parties may be responsible for offences committed by the drivers and operators of heavy vehicles. A person may be a party in the supply chain in more than one way. For example they may have duties as the employer, the operator and the consigner of goods.

Legal liability applies to all parties for their actions or inactions.

 - Who are the parties in the supply chain?
 - When could COR apply?
 - What are your roles and responsibilities?
 - Where does the boundary of responsibility lie?
