RFNSW would have liked the opportunity to put our members’ viewpoints to the publication and allow readers the ability to assess some of the facts about truck safety. As a consequence, we put to the Sydney Morning Herald the following view of our membership:

“We would have appreciated the opportunity to have some input into the articles to give our members’ perspectives on truck safety. After all, they balance safety and compliance, with their cost imperatives, as few others do,” Mr O’Hara said today.

“RFNSW meets with our members and stakeholders like RMS and NHVR regularly to raise any issues we have around safety policies and compliance, with strategies then developed and implemented, as part of our commitment to heavy vehicle safety on NSW roads.”

The RFNSW annual conference, to be held in Sydney on 1 November, will focus on how carriers can gain the knowledge and expertise to successfully operate under the new CoR, ensuring that safety and compliance is at the centre of their businesses.
