RSRT visits port operators as part of inquiry


Tribunal members visit Butler Freight Services, Port Melbourne Containers and DP World.

 

The Road Safety Remuneration Tribunal (RSRT) has conducted three site visits in Melbourne as part of its inquiry into wharf and port operations.

A three-person team visited the workplaces of Butler Freight Services, Port Melbourne Containers and DP World Melbourne yesterday.

RSRT senior deputy president Lea Drake and tribunal members Steve Hutchins and Tim Squires are responsible for the inquiry and conducting the visits.

The inspections are the first to take place in the wharf transport inquiry, with future inspections also likely in each of the other ports of focus: Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, and Fremantle.

The inquiry will produce a final report that the RSRT will consider with the option of issuing a road safety remuneration order. 

This can stipulate terms and conditions on all parties – not just road transport operators – involved in port work.
