Petroccitto and Kynection director John Tsoucalas formalise agreement at show
The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) has approved Quallogi by Kynection as a fifth Electronic Work Diary (EWD) option for heavy vehicle drivers.
NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto said the Quallogi EWD would be available for use as an official record for heavy vehicle driver work and rest hours from May 25.
“Drivers have been switching over to using an Electronic Work Diary since we approved the first system in December last year and it’s great to see Quallogi is also available as an alternative to the National Written Work Diary,” Petroccitto says.
“The introduction of EWDs means drivers can record their work and rest hours by pressing a button, rather than spending time ruling lines and counting multiple time periods on multiple pieces of paper.
“The Quallogi includes features, such as alerts, to assist drivers to manage their compliance with work and rest rules.”
The Quallogi system is available on selected devices, which are outlined on the NHVR website.
Petroccitto signed the Kynection EWD certificate while visiting the Brisbane Truck Show, which runs until Sunday.
The NHVR emphasises that it’s important that drivers check the NHVR website to ensure they’re using an NHVR-approved EWD.
Drivers must continue to carry their written work diary for a transition period, to ensure that they comply with the requirement of carrying 28 days of records.
Any issues with EWDs may be reported to the NHVR by phone or using a website form at www.nhvr.gov.au/contact-us
