CoR Comply is proving to be the perfect compliance solution for small transport operators. Chain of Responsibility compliance is vital for small transport operators, read on to see how we can help.
If There’s an Accident
When you have trucks on the road, there is always the risk of an accident, even when your driver has done nothing wrong. You should always be prepared for the Regulator to knock on your door and have peace of mind that if that happens, you’ll have the right systems in place.
Your Major Client (and source of income) Wants to Audit You
When you’re sub-contracting to large organisations, they often like to ensure all their supply chain partners meet the same high standards of safety and compliance as they do and ultimately, they do not want their brand tarnished with an accident which may end up on the media and being reported on the internet. The reality is, if you can’t give them what they want, you may lose that work. The future of your business can depend on getting this right.

CoR Comply is the Real Deal to Keep You Out of Trouble
For legal compliance and supplier audits, CoR Comply is a quick, simple and cost-effective way to tidy up your compliance and be able to demonstrate to Regulators and clients, that you manage your risks and comply with the law. We know this for a fact – we’ve been contacted by small operators in some dire circumstances and helped them back on the road and to keep a major client.
You Don’t Need to be Computer Savvy
CoR Comply is a one-off purchase. There’s no log-ins or software required. The packages are tailored to meet CoR Supplier Questionnaires and Audits AND comply with the Heavy Vehicle National Law. We are here to help you and provide free phone and email support for the first month after purchase.
What Can Happen If You’re Not Prepared?
In the short term, you could get some negative media and lose your income. In the longer term, you could end up in Court. Penalties for breaches of the primary safety duties under the Heavy Vehicle National Law were aligned to Work Health and Safety laws in October 2018. There are 3 categories of severity with penalties ranging from $300,00 and 5 years jail for individuals to $3 million for companies and jail terms for the most serious negligence.
Many small businesses can’t survive through a prosecution, which often takes years before the case is finally heard in Court. If can demonstrate during an investigation by the Regulator that you had systems in place and were managing CoR risks, it should never get to that. This is a huge incentive to get this right before anything happens.
