Chain of Responsibility

Chain of Responsibility legislation means that everyone in the supply chain shares equal responsibility for ensuring that breaches of the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) do not occur.

So, if you consign, pack, load or receive goods as part of your business, you could be held legally liable for breaches of the HVNL, even if you did not play a direct role in driving or operating a heavy vehicle. In addition, managers, directors, and partners can be held accountable for the actions of people under their control.

Chain of Responsibility legislation applies to driver fatigue management, adherence to speed limits, breaches of mass, dimensions and load requirements, and breaches in driver management by a company or its management.

Given these responsibilities, effective preventative measures against axle over-loading infringements and total load infringements are essential. That’s where AccuWeigh can help.
