BTS21: NTI lends a hand with new online safety hub
Platform to cover topics like communication, fatigue management and technology

Transport insurer NTI has launched an online hub to help support the trucking industry through tools and resources.

The new Better Business Hub aims to help protect Aussie fleet, transport operators and drivers by providing interactive, downloadable, and applicable content to support them in their day-to-day operations.

Its maiden feature is an educational content series called, Business of Safety, that was made possible through a $300,000 Federal Government grant, administered by the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR), and supplemented by NTI’s own in-kind contribution to match the grant.

Business of Safety was launched this morning at the Brisbane Truck Show, along with an industry briefing.

NTI customer and industry strategy head Staci Clark says the body of work covers a large array of topics, including successful communication, fatigue management and technology.

"We know there is a lot to consider for operators and company owners when it comes to navigating red tape, staying up-to-date with technology, managing teams and maximising profitability, so we wanted to create a go-to online resource where anyone in the industry can access practical information in a way that is simple to digest," Clark says.

"As well as NTI experts, content will be provided by external specialists Australia-wide, in the form of articles, infographics, videos and other templates so drivers, operators and management can engage with the content best suited to them.

"Safety is everyone’s business and NTI is proud to support the transport industry in moving to a safer and more sustainable future."

National Heavy Vehicle Regulator CEO Sal Petroccitto says the Heavy Vehicle Safety Initiative had so far allocated $22.8 million through 89 separate grants over the past five years.

"Improving heavy vehicle safety and safety for all drivers is the top priority of the NHVR," Petroccitto says.

"I’m delighted we could support the NTI program to develop content and tools which will assist transport operators effect change and build a robust safety culture."
