The Australian Trucking Association (ATA)
At a time when heavy vehicle accidents were at an all-time high, the Australian Trucking Association needed a major overhaul to implement a recognised safety accreditation program that addressed driver health and well-being nationwide.
RYP International researched, designed, trialled and implemented a driver safety program, now called ‘Trucksafe’, which addressed the key standards including driver health, driver fatigue, vehicle maintenance and safety checks. The initiative was hailed the largest preventative men’s health program in the country and made Australia a trailblazer for driver fatigue management programs. Since it’s implementation the trucking industry has maintained this initiative and is now credited as one of the safest heavy-vehicle industries in the world.
