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 - Massage

    As part of the Heavy Vehicle Safety Around Ports project targeted at heavy vehicle operators, we are offering workers within the Port of Brisbane precinct the opportunity to receive a complimentary seated massage at the Port Central Cafe.

    On-site Stress Management's professional massage therapists will be visiting The Island Port Cafe on the dates below to provide free 10 minute ergonomic chair massages.

    Ergonomic Chair Massage focuses specifically on the back, neck and shoulders, and is performed while seated on our special chairs that support your chest and head. The chairs allow greater access to the entire back and allow you to relax and make the most of your massage appointment. You will remain fully clothed and no oils are used.

    There is no need to book as the massages will be performed on a first come first served basis.

    Come and visit the team on the verandah of the cafe to receive your complimentary massage!
