organisation, which is focused on achieving a more equitable
gender balance across the heavy vehicle driver workforce
The Role of Government, Education and Regulation, with

institutions need to do for industry to progress improved
diversity and inclusion in our industry.
The summit was asked to propose strategies to:
attract, retain and support women in the industry
widen the recruitment pool to help bring a new perspective
to the industry
achieve greater equality in the industry.
Actions suggested at the summit were noted, and will form the
basis of ALC’s annual work plan that will go to the ALC Board.
ALC SAFETY & COMPLIANCE
In late August, ALC hosted its Supply Chain Safety & Compliance
Summit, which attracted more than 300 transporters, customers,
suppliers and government officials.
Based on the success of the 2014 Summit, ALC expanded this
year’s event to two days to include a very valuable workshop day.
At the Summit, delegates shared ideas, benchmarked best
practice and identified areas where improvements can be made
to improve safety and compliance outcomes.
As Ingilby Dickson, Chair of the ALC Safety Committee, said in his
opening address, the industry has come a long way since last year’s
Summit to address a range of areas that needed attention, including
strengthening and streamlining the ALC Codes of Practice.
As a result of the Summit discussions, ALC committed to a range
of actions. They included:
working more closely with national/state industry bodies
and the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator to identify where
resources can be shared to improve safety and compliance
outcomes on common CoR issues, particularly in regards to
compliance and enforcement
working with the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator to explore
how CoR can be more deeply embedded into organisations’
standard operating procedures
exploring how the ALC National Logistics Safety Code
of Practice may be more closely aligned and potentially
integrated into a Safe Work Australia code framework
engagement and collaboration with relevant regulators and
industry members to communicate new obligations imposed
by amendments to the International Convention for the
Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS)
increasing advocacy for the mandatory introduction of
telematics for heavy vehicles
continuing to build the Retail Logistics Safety Code of Practice
(RLSC) brand, and reviewing the increasing education of the
ALC Codes’ Partnership Audit Review (PAR) process.
Work has already commenced on some of the actions flowing
from the Summit on issues such as container movements and
executive officer liability.
ALC was also honoured to partner with the Australian Steel
Institute at the event, which held its annual Steel Awards as part
of the Summit Dinner.
