    A reminder of health and safety obligations - after a spike in truck crashes

    A reminder of health and safety obligations - after a spike in truck crashes


    There were 57 fatal crashes, 170 serious and 521 minor injuries involving trucks in the transport, postal and warehousing sectors in 2019.

    That's according to Worksafe, which says companies must take better care of workers in the supply chain.

    Engagement and implementation lead Ruth Cook says that includes businesses which outsource their transport.

    She says they have a responsibility to ensure scheduling, pricing, lengths of contracts and the equipment used set workers up for success.
