REDUCING road transport fatalities is the central aim of the 2019/20 edition of the Transport & Logistics Industry Guide to Workplace Safety, prepared by Pro-Visual Publishing.

According to the publishers, road transport has been identified as a national priority under The Australian Work Health and Safety Strategy 2012-2022 due to the high number of fatalities.

They noted there were 208 road transport work-related fatalities between 2012 and 2016.

The guide explores several topics on workplace safety including:

  • Safety Management Systems and the Heavy Vehicle National Law;
  • The chain of responsibility;
  • Fatigue risk management; and
  • Maintenance

The guide is said to be digitally interactive with an augmented realty component and by using the AR app, workers can scan over content to access further safety information.

Pro-Visual chief executive John Hutchings thanked those who had supported development of the Guide concept.

Pro-Visual Publishing is a prominent player in production of guides regarding workplace health and safety, food safety and hygiene, and general well-being.
