Organisations have a chain of responsibility to ensure breaches of road laws and occupational health and safety (OHS) do not occur. Anyone who has control of transport operations including drivers, employers, loaders, consignors, packers, operators, schedulers and receivers can be held responsible for breaches and held legally liable. This has now been expanded to company directors.
Under changes to the OHS laws, directors have statutory duties to ensure their company does not breach OHS standards. Breaches can face fines or even jail sentences of up to 20 years.
