Across Australia and New Zealand, the transport and logistics industry employ approximately half a million people.
The industry is complex and a strong commitment and shared approach to meeting industry compliance is a high priority to keep workplaces safe. Within supply chains, each party has a responsibility to implement positive actions to prevent safety breaches and injury to protect the health and wellbeing of workers, contractors, sub-contractors, visitors and the community.
The significant use of sub-contractors in transport and logistics means that employing entities also have a recognised downstream compliance responsibility which needs to be considered as part of safety and risk management programs.
All parts of the chain need to deliver consistent and standardised safety information, education and training to adhere to agreed processes and procedures. Depending on the sector or role, employing entites may also be required to perform regular background checks, site or consignment inductions, and monitor industry licences, tickets and accreditations.
WorkPro helps businesses to mitigate these risks with a single online platform for background checks, safety inductions and compliance eLearning, and electronic management of documents and licence, ticket and accreditation renewals. We make workforce compliance simple in transport and logistics, so employers can spend less time worrying about their industry obligations and more on growing a successful business.
