HEAVY VEHICLES

The National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme was introduced in 2008 to support improved safety for commercial vehicle drivers in the heavy vehicle industry.

Under the scheme, standards are set for various aspects of heavy vehicle operations including fatigue management given drivers’ extensive hours spent on the road, and the serious consequences likely to result from a crash.

There are various health conditions that can affect a commercial driver’s ability to drive safely, for example:
  • Blackouts or fainting
  • Vision problems
  • Heart disease
  • Epilepsy
  • Sleep disorders
  • Diabetes
  • Psychiatric disorders
  • Neurological disorders
  • Age-related declines

Fitness To Drive Assessments

The Basic Fatigue Management and Advanced Fatigue Management standards require that drivers undergo regular health assessments to make sure they meet the medical criteria for commercial vehicle drivers contained in Assessing Fitness to Drive, with a particular focus on aspects such as sleep disorders, substance abuse etc. Assessments must be carried out three yearly for drivers below the age of 50 and yearly for those 50 and over.

In addition to health assessments, the standard also sets out a range of measures to support drivers’ health.

To comply with the standards, heavy vehicle operators must ensure drivers attend for assessments and are certified fit to drive.

The Assessing Fitness to Drive standards are also the basis of health assessments conducted under the Australian Trucking Association TruckSafe scheme.

For heavy vehicle operators needing more information about Assessing Fitness to Drive standards for commercial vehicle drivers, visit the Austroads website.
