Heavy Vehicle Safety Around Ports Project

Heavy Vehicle Safety Around Ports

The Port of Brisbane is heavily reliant on the road transport network, with more than 3.1 million vehicles travelling on port roads annually, including a large proportion of heavy vehicles. This is set to increase as the freight task grows.

Both the QTA Ltd and PBPL are strongly committed to the heavy vehicle safety agenda, and this project will deliver safety-focused, tangible improvements using evidence-based findings.

The project involved conducting a number of road safety measures across fatigue and people health and wellbeing to determine the most effective solutions in reducing near-misses and accidents. It is hoped the project will deliver benefits and learnings for the entire road freight industry in Australia.

We are currently in Phase 2 of the project and will be providing information and awareness around the initiatives included in the project and running workshops in 2021.

We will be sending information kits in early 2021 with practical steps on how to set up the health and wellbeing initiatives included in the project in your workplace.

    Heavy Vehicle Safety Around Ports

    In 2018, the Queensland Trucking Association (QTA) received funding from the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator through the 2018-19 round of the Heavy Vehicle Safety Initiative program. The grant funding was to deliver the two year Heavy Vehicle Safety Around Ports Project in partnership with the Port of Brisbane.

    The project has delivered more than 970 free health and wellbeing initiatives to the road transport industry, based in and around the Port of Brisbane precinct.

    Register your details and a digital information kit will be sent to you in early 2021, outlining practical steps on how to set up health and wellbeing initiatives that were included in the Heavy Vehicle Safety Around Ports Project, in your workplace.

    The initiatives that will be included in the information kit will be:

    • skin checks
    • flu vaccinations
    • heart and health assessments
    • seated massage
    • financial health
