Do you know what your Executive obligations are?
Breaching Chain of Responsibility (CoR) laws can now result in:
Up to $300,000 fines and 5 years’ imprisonment for individuals
Up to $3 million fines for companies
If your business has any connection with a heavy vehicle that moves freight from point A to point B – whether you own the transport company, are a contract driver, or you arrange to deliver or receive the freight – the CoR laws apply to you.
And the buck will stop with the Executives of a company.
Anybody involved in the decision-making of a company can be legally classed as an Executive.
Fail to meet your obligations as an Executive under the CoR and you will be liable.
And your liability cannot be delegated to another employee either.
If you are not entirely sure what all of your responsibilities are under the CoR, now is the time to get on top of it, before it’s too late.
