Chain of Responsibility
At Linfox, the conversation about safety and compliance is one we have with team members every day.
While we have built a reputation on safety and compliance, we know that even the most efficient supply chain can quickly come undone without a firm commitment to road compliance at every link in the chain.
This means that every team member at Linfox – whether they work in the yard, in the office, in the workshop, in the warehouse or on the road – must understand the role they play in the Chain of Responsibility (CoR).
Our robust approach to risk management and road compliance is finely tuned across our operations to address our obligations under Heavy Vehicle National Law.
This is supported by an ongoing investment in a modern fleet with state-of-the-art safety features and the latest vehicle technology to detect and deter fatigue on long-haul routes.
Our focus on health and wellbeing through our Healthy Fox program and research partnerships supports our drivers to make healthier work and lifestyle choices.
Importantly, Linfox’s best drivers train new drivers in our leading operational training program to maintain the highest standards of safety and performance.
Our award-winning subcontractor management system ensures all parties who influence our freight tasks are compliant with our uncompromising safety standards and CoR obligations.
Through our commitment to Vision Zero, we seek to be safer in everything we do, leading the way in road safety and compliance across the transport and logistics industry.
The National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme (NHVAS) is managed by the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) and recognises operators with robust safety and road compliance management systems in place.
Linfox and BevChain are accredited for:
- Mass Management
- Maintenance Management
- Basic Fatigue Management (BFM)
Some sites operate under the WA Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme (WAHVAS), Australian Logistics Council Master Code Auditing Service (AMCAS), Hazard Analyss Critical Control Point (HACCP) and other food transport and environmental licences.
Linfox is committed to complying with all legislation, licences and schemes that ensure a safe supply chain.
This is the responsibility of every person with a role to play in the Chain or Responsibility.
