IR and OH&S: Specialist Advice and Support for Employers IN ALL INDUSTRIES
Fatigue Management, NHVAS and C&E
SAMS is a leading expert in the Truck Industry NHVAS Fatigue Management, Mass Management, Maintenance Management and Compliance & Enforcement laws and we provide a wide range of compliance tools and accreditation programs to help operators and drivers ensure that they comply.
Hundreds of trucking businesses use SAMS highly-regarded Fatigue Management compliance tools and accreditation programs for Mass Management, Maintenance Management, Fatigue Management and Speed Compliance.
If just 5% of work days in a 5-truck fleet involve breaches - that's 60 breaches in a year and the cost in fines can easily be over $30,000 and up to several hundred thousand dollars; so avoiding just a mere handful of such fines more than pays for far smaller cost of SAMS Fatigue Management tools and products.
SAMS established the first 6 AFM (Advanced Fatigue Management) programs in South Australia since November 2010 and we have also established many more BFM and even Standard Hours programs for operators. Our programs are so well regarded by the authorities and Auditors that they are processed quickly; because we have worked closely with the authorities in developing our programs and they are confident in and trust our work.
The key to developing and implementing effective NHVAS and Fatigue accreditation programs is to ensure that the programs are cost-effective, practical and tailored to the operator's needs. We do just that.
Ensuring compliance with the very complex Fatigue Management laws for truck operations requires a database designed by industry experts in the fatigue laws. SAMS Fatigue Database was developed by Steve Shearer, based on his detailed and practical knowledge of the industry and the Fatigue and Speed laws. SAMS Fatigue Database helps you manage your operations and drivers' fatigue whilst meeting your legal obligations and minimising your risk of $500 to $50,000 fines. It helps you easily and efficiently establish a Reasonable Steps Defence, based on comprehensive compliance checking and records, with just a fraction of the time and effort that doing it manually requires.
Our range of innovative Fatigue Management and Compliance tools also includes the Fatigue Calculator and the Fatigue Scheduler and two tools for the driver, the Fatigue Wheel and the Fatigue Buddy (Smart Phone App or Laptop version). All of these tools are designed to provide operators and drivers with a range of options for managing their compliance with the Fatigue laws, depending upon their needs and the size and complexity of their operation.
