The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) is calling for submissions for the next round of Australian Government funding to support industry-led safety projects.

NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto said “We are looking for submissions that detail implementable, value-for-money projects that will deliver significant heavy vehicle safety benefits.

“Safety projects that are already benefiting from support of the Heavy Vehicle Safety Initiative program include a funding option for a livestock unloading crate by the Australian Livestock and Rural Transporters Association, a series of safety workshops by the Australian Forest Contractors Association, Chain of Responsibility information being delivered nationally, and a fog awareness trial being rolled-out in Victoria.”

Applications are open until February 23, 2018.
