The CSG Industry – Working Together To Address our Safety Challenges Vehicle Safety 6 May 2011
Light Vehicle Standards The industry accepts that one of its highest risks is presented by the operation of light vehicles in urban and rural/remote locations. One area to assist in reducing this risk, is setting a minimum vehicle specification for Light Vehicles, which each of the CSG companies and their permanent contractors will be required to meet before 4 th Qtr 2012, or at vehicle change over. Common sense has prevailed so most mandatory items are likely to be part of ‘business as usual’ fitment except for In Vehicle Monitoring Systems, referred to as IVMS, for vehicles used in regional or remote applications.

Light Vehicle Driver Training Standards Intent: Have in place a minimum competency framework that transcends industries and contributes to individuals attaining nationally recognised qualifications. Method: Adopt the Australian Qualifications Framework using competency units from the Resource and Infrastructure Industry, specifically: RIIVEH201A – Operate Light Vehicle RIIVEH305A – Operate and Maintain a 4WD PMASUP236B – Operate Vehicles in the Field Outcome: A sound basis for recognition of competencies without multiplicity creating onerous downtime and cost to meet threshold safety requirements created by different clients.
Heavy Vehicle Code of Practice Intent: Establish a clear set of expectations that each of the CSG companies utilise when; undertaking heavy haulage, engaging with heavy haulage providers or procuring heavy haulage services. Method: Being clear about the roles each party plays in line with the Chain of Responsibility guide that the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads has published. Building a Code of Practice based on these roles and the Australian Steel Industry code. Outcome: Registering a Chain of Responsibility Code of Practice (CoRCoP) which the CSG operators and their contractors can use to regularly review and improve their business practices.
