Chain of Responsibility Legislation Change – Info Session
If your business consigns, packs, loads or receives goods, you could be held legally liable for breaches of the Heavy Vehicle National Law(HVNL) even though you have no direct role in driving or operating a heavy vehicle. In addition, corporate entities, directors, partners and managers are accountable for the actions of people under their control.
Join our information session on July 10 from 11:00-12:15 AM to get an overview of the legislation changes, and how it may impact you or your business. Info Session will be held at the GMC Office 82 Brougham Street, Geelong.
