The 2018 Supply Chain Safety & Compliance Summit will be held on 5-6 September 2018 at the Melbourne Park Function Centre, and will feature both policy discussions and workshops.
This year’s Summit will be the last major industry event before the commencement of:
- the expanded Chain of Responsibility (CoR) obligations under the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL), and
- the new Registered Industry Code of Practice (Master Code) for heavy vehicle safety, jointly developed by ALC and the Australian Trucking Association.
Day 1 will feature high level discussions, keynote presentations and panel sessions on current policy and legal issues relating to Chain of Responsibility, Work Health & Safety laws and the increasing role of technology in enhanced supply chain safety.
Day 2 will incorporate interactive workshop sessions, focused on providing supply chain practitioners with practical advice on how to improve safety standards and meet their Chain of Responsibility / Work Health & Safety obligations.The Safety Summit will shape ALC’s advocacy agenda around safety issues for 2018-19, and is expected to attract over 300 industry representatives from all parts of the supply chain.
The Summit is held each year to raise awareness about Chain of Responsibility, and provide practical advice about steps industry participants should take to ensure high levels of safety and compliance within their own organisation.
The Summit will also focus on the policy issues raised in ALC’s position paper, Improving Heavy Vehicle Safety the Australian Way, released last month.
Registrations for the ALC Supply Chain Safety & Compliance Summit will open very soon. Save the date for this must-attend event!
Chain of Responsibility means all parties in a supply chain are required to implement positive actions to prevent breaches of the law. Companies cannot ‘contract out’ their CoR obligations, no matter what their industry sector or part of the supply chain.
