After many months of hard work, the SG Fleet Innovation Hub has introduced its ‘Chain of Responsibility’ heavy vehicle inspection tool, Inspect365, at a launch event at our Homebush facility earlier this week.
Our staff were able to do their first inspections on a truck in order to demonstrate this leading edge tool to our customers.
What is this all about?
The changes to the Heavy Vehicle National Laws will significantly affect the transport industry and are expected to be introduced on 1 October 2018.
For the first time, the ‘Chain of Responsibility’ will extend to vehicle standards and maintenance. Everyone in the supply chain who has control or influence over elements in the heavy vehicle road transport process will be held responsible for non-compliance.
The penalties for non-compliance are significant: entire fleets could be grounded, businesses fined up to $3,000,000 and directors and senior executives could face fines of up to $300,000 or up to 5 years’ imprisonment (or both).
sgfleet has developed Inspect365 to help customers improve safety and manage their compliance responsibilities. Working closely with industry experts and leveraging our 30 years of industry-leading fleet management expertise, sgfleet has developed a system that not only allows customers to manage their safety inspections but, through integration with repairers, also permits the reporting of progress on identified action items and the reporting of completed repairs by the repairer. Inspect365’s ‘closed loop’ system provides an objective record of actions taken, which is a critical part of demonstrating compliance.
