An exciting new online safety hub has been unveiled by Australia’s leading transport and logistics specialist insurer, NTI, to support the growth and development of the industry.
The Better Business Hub helps protect Aussie fleet, transport operators and drivers by providing interactive, downloadable, applicable tools and resources to support them in their day-to-day.
The first educational content series on the Hub, Business of Safety, has been made possible through a $300,000 Federal Government grant, administered by the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR), supplemented by NTI’s own in-kind contribution to match the grant.
NTI’s Head of Customer and Industry Strategy Staci Clark said the body of work covers a large array of topics, including successful communication, fatigue management and technology.
“We know there is a lot to consider for operators and company owners when it comes to navigating red tape, staying up-to-date with technology, managing teams and maximising profitability, so we wanted to create a go-to online resource where anyone in the industry can access practical information in a way that is simple to digest,” Ms Clark said.
“As well as NTI experts, content will be provided by external specialists Australia-wide, in the form of articles, infographics, videos and other templates so drivers, operators and management can engage with the content best suited to them.”
“Safety is everyone’s business and NTI is proud to support the transport industry in moving to a safer and more sustainable future,” Ms Clark said.
National Heavy Vehicle Regulator CEO Sal Petroccitto said the Heavy Vehicle Safety Initiative had so far allocated $22.8M through 89 separate grants over the past five years.
“Improving heavy vehicle safety and safety for all drivers is the top priority of the NHVR,” Mr Petroccitto said.
“I’m delighted we could support the NTI program to develop content and tools which will assist transport operators effect change and build a robust safety culture.”
Business of Safety is being launched at 8am Thursday 13 May 2021 at the Brisbane Truck Show, held at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, from 13-16 May.
