Code of Practice
The Code of Practice was developed by the Road Transport Industry, Department of Transport and NT WorkSafe.
It is intended for use as a benchmark by road transport operators including commercial bus and tour vehicle operators.
Go to the WorkSafeNT website to read the code of practice.
The code provides guidance on how to meet duty of care obligations under NT work health and safety laws.
It lists guiding principles which should be considered in the development of a fatigue management system for drivers.
The code focuses on safe outcomes as a result of appropriate risk assessment based on the task at hand, the flexibility to take appropriate rest and the management of driver health issues.
