Work and rest requirements

In addition to the general duty to not drive a fatigue-regulated heavy vehicle on a road while fatigued, drivers must comply with certain maximum work and minimum rest limits. 

Parties in the supply chain have to take all reasonable steps to prevent the drivers from exceeding these limits. This is similar to occupational health and safety laws and means that drivers must be allowed to stop if they are at risk of exceeding the limits and make alternative arrangements.

The Heavy Vehicle National Law sets three work and rest options, Standard hours, Basic fatigue management (BFM) and Advanced fatigue management (AFM) 

Standard hours are the work and rest hours allowed in the HVNL. They are the maximum amount of work and minimum amount of rest possible that can be performed safely without additional safety countermeasures.

(BFM) Those operating under NHVAS with Basic Fatigue Management (BFM) accreditation can operate under more flexible work and rest hours, allowing for (among other things) work of up to 14 hours in a 24-hour period.

(AFM) Rather than setting work and rest hours, AFM offers the flexibility to propose your own hours as long as the fatigue risks of those hours are offset by sleep, rest and other management practices in a compliant fatigue management system

Onroad Offroad Training P/L operates under standard hours work/rest requirements  please leading up to and or prior to the date of your training course/courses or training package you must adhere to these work hours under the  Heavy Vehicle National Law  listed below is a table from the NHVR website with the work and rest hour requirements under standard hours
