Heavy Vehicle Safety Around Ports Project


Port of Brisbane

Queensland Trucking Association Ltd





A joint initiative between the Port of Brisbane and the Queensland Trucking Association


On Friday 10th August 2018, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure Michael McCormack, announced that Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd (PBPL) and the Queensland Trucking Association Lt (QTA LTD) have been successful in their bid for funding under the 2018-19 Heavy Vehicle Safety Initiative Fund. The Heavy Vehicle Safety Around Ports project is funded by the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR).

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 will pilot a number of road safety measures across fatigue, speed and people 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.

    Heavy Vehicle Safety Around Ports - Health Assessments

    As part of the Heavy Vehicle Safety Around Ports project, all businesses within the Port of Brisbane precinct have the opportunity to receive free preventative health assessments for their workforce. QTA, Port of Brisbane & NHVR are excited to be partnering with Heart of Australia to provide this cutting-edge employee health screening service.

    A Heart of Australia preventative health assessment takes just 20 minutes and involves a short online questionnaire followed by a minimally-invasive physical assessment and finger-prick blood test with a Registered Nurse. The Registered Nurse will set up on-site at your depot / office and can complete up to 30 health assessments per day. Sessions can be run either as a half day or full day, depending on your participant numbers.

    Sessions will be booked for either the week starting Monday 16th September or Monday 14th October. Please indicate your preference when registering your interest.

    During the assessment, participants will have their health assessed across the following areas:

    • Physical: Blood Pressure, Body Composition, Respiratory Function, Risk of Diabetes, Lipid Profile, Liver Function, Kidney Function;
    • Lifestyle: Nutrition, Movement & Fitness, Sleep, Alcohol, Smoking;
    • Psychological: Stress, Anxiety, Depression, Social Health, Motivation.

    This health screening is a convenient way to provide your employees with comprehensive and confidential insights into their physical and mental health. Participants receive a 20-page report that has been individually reviewed by a GP and contains a range of personalised recommendations. It outlines the greatest risks to their health, and provides clear, actionable steps to address these risks.

    SPACES ARE LIMITED - BE QUICK TO REGISTER!

    To be involved you need:

    • a minimum of 10 participating employees for a half day session (maximum 15 participants) or a minimum 20 participating employees for a full day session (maximum 30 participants).
