Tasmania introduces national fatigue laws on 30 March 2015:

National fatigue management law will apply in Tasmania from Monday 30 March 2015.

The NHVR has worked with the Department of State Growth to help prepare industry for implementation of the new law.

Information sessions will be conducted in various locations around Tasmania from 11 March 2015 to explain the new law, including:

  • work and rest hours
  • flexible work arrangements such as Basic Fatigue Management and Advanced Fatigue Management
  • how to complete a work diary
  • how to keep records for drivers
  • Chain of Responsibility.

There will be ample time in the sessions for participants to ask questions.

Further information on the times and locations of the forums can be found at www.nhvr.gov.au/tasmania-fatigue-laws.
