Masterclass for directors, executives and managers – new 'chain of responsibility' regime

To assist the road transport industry and other participants in the supply chain comply with their new obligations, we are running a specialised half-day training course in Melbourne on Tuesday 10 October. This course is interactive with a maximum number of 20 participants, so that there will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions.

The course covers practical issues such as:

  • recap of the current chain of responsibility regime and an overview of the new regime
  • primary duties and the meaning of 'reasonably practicable'
  • due diligence obligations of executive officers and managers
  • compliance systems and policies, including managing breaches of policies
  • roadworthiness and vehicle safety issues
  • penalties and other enforcement options
  • dealing with regulators and managing court proceedings
  • managing critical incidents
  • insurance and asset protection strategies.

This course will be of benefit to directors, senior executives and managers of road transport operators and other parties in the supply chain, as well as their advisers.

7:45 am for 8:00 am – 11:30 am (AEDT)

Transport operators and contracts – navigating the fine print

This three-hour course has been developed based on feedback from our transport clients, who are often asked to sign contracts that contain complex provisions in relation to indemnities and insurance.

The course will cover practical issues including:

  • When is an operator liable for loss of or damage to goods being carried or stored?
  • Entering into written contracts with your customers: which clauses do you need to watch out for?
  • Engaging subcontractors and tow operators: what legislation must transport operators comply with?
  • The new provisions in relation to 'unfair contract terms': do they affect your business?
  • Participants will receive detailed notes and a checklist to use in their business.
  • The seminar will be of benefit to road transport and warehouse operators and their advisers.
