The transport and logistics industry is vital globally, but is constantly challenged by the need for greater efficiency within hazardous and legislatively complex environments.

The pressure on transport and logistics to transform and drive innovation and efficiency, update capital infrastructure and reduce costs-per-unit can often mean that resources to improve or effectively manage health and safety aren’t prioritised.

When this challenging commercial environment is coupled with hazardous work environments, it’s not unusual to see disastrous impacts on roads, other transport networks and warehouses. In 2016, for example, there were more workplace fatalities in the transport, postal and warehousing industry than any other sector in Australia.
