Submissions sought on NTC framework for heavy vehicle driver fatigue research

The National Transport Commission (NTC) has released a discussion paper that identifies how governments can work together, and with industry, to develop a national framework to facilitate collecting real-life operational data to better inform future heavy vehicle driver fatigue policy.

The discussion paper proposes an agreed terminology, systems and processes that will enable a new framework to support comparable and accessible data across industry, governments and enforcement agencies.

The NTC is seeking feedback on the development of the data framework, including the priority fatigue issues and proposed data collection and research activities.

Submissions are due by 16 October 2015.

More information is available on the NTC website.
