Frequently Asked Questions
The Chain of Responsibility (CoR) law ensures everyone who works with heavy vehicles – from the business that employs a driver to the place where goods are delivered – is accountable for safety. The Chain refers to all aspects of responsibility from goods source to final destination.
Under the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL), everyone in the transport supply chain has a legal obligation to ensure breaches of road transport laws do not occur. This is called the ‘Chain of Responsibility’. Chain of Responsibility training or CoR training is essential for all employees involved in any aspect of the transport chain.
Employed drivers who perform any function that IS part of CoR – are parties to the requirements. If, however you are an employed driver and have no other duties and HVNL obligations then CoR does not apply as Driving is not a CoR function.
Understanding the nuance between different functions and at what point being party to CoR applies is a key component of our training. We recommend employed drivers undertake this training as it supports overall safety of each driver and the other parties involved in the CoR.
Since many drivers also perform additional functions they are often party to CoR – and, as such, it is one of the reasons this training is commonly referred to as the Drivers level 1 CoR Training.
