Information Sessions - Chain of Responsibility

National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) is holding an industry information session in Moree at 12.30pm Thursday 23 August 2018 to explain the amendments to the Heavy Vehicle National Law and the changes to the Chain of Responsibility.

Each party within the heavy vehicle transport supply chain has a duty, under the Law, to ensure the safety of their transport activities. The information session will outline the changes to the Chain of Responsibility and the impact on business and how a Safety Management System can help businesses effectively manage their operation’s safety risks.

Acting Director of Engineering Kylie Kerr explained the information sessions are aimed at haulage companies and heavy vehicle users, particularly farmers and agricultural related business, to help them understand their obligations to eliminate or minimise potential harm, loss or risk as outlined under the Law.

“If you are part of the supply chain, you need to make sure you are aware of your role and responsibilities before the changes will come into effect from 1 October.”

“The supply chain includes anyone who has control over the transport task not just the truck driver, including person or business that requests, packs, loads or schedules deliver of the goods, as well as the person or business that receives or unloads the goods.”

“Information sessions will help build your capacity to identify risks associated your business' transport activities and understand how safety management systems can assist you to manage that risk and comply with your obligations under the Heavy Vehicle National Law,” said Mrs Kerr.

The Chain of Responsibility information session is hosted by Moree Plains Shire Council and presented by the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator at the Max Centre, Council Committee Room, Level 1, 30 Heber Street, Moree.



Get Rid of Unwanted Chemicals

Residents can get rid of unwanted chemicals and hazardous liquid waste through the free environmentally-friendly Household Chemical CleanOut by dropping products to the Community Recycling Centre (CRC) at the Moree Waste Management Facility on 22 August 2018.

Council’s Acting Waste Manager Tahra Sayers said the annual Household Chemical CleanOut is a vitally important community service which benefits both the environment and the health and safety of people of Moree Plains.

“Check cupboards and the garage for any old or unwanted chemicals including paints, solvents, pesticides and other hazardous products like cleaners and poisons.”

“Leftover chemicals, up to 20 litres or 20kgs, can be dropped off to the Moree Waste Management Facility on Wednesday 22 August for free,” said Mrs Sayers.

“The Community Recycling Centre (CRC) also accepts a variety of problem wastes on a daily basis including products like gas bottles, fluorescent globes, fire extinguishers, oils and batteries.”

The Household Chemical CleanOut is organised by Northern Inland Regional Waste (NIRW) and supported by Moree Plains Shire Council and the NSW EPA Waste Less, Recycle More initiative, funded from the waste levy, the campaign helps residents get rid of unwanted, old and unknown chemicals from the kitchen and laundry cupboards and out in the garage which are gathering dust and becoming unstable.
