More Information About Chain of Responsibility

Under the CoR legislation any person or organisation with control or influence in the transport chain has legal responsibilities to ensure compliance with all relevant heavy vehicle road laws.

Chain Of Responsibility Course Requirements

Under the new national laws, everyone in the supply chain must take ‘reasonable steps’ to prevent driver fatigue and ensure a driver does not drive a heavy vehicle impaired by fatigue - an approach consistent with Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) laws.

Who Is Responsible?

The new National Transport Commission Legislation is clear. All parties in the supply chain who manage or influence elements of the supply chain, have responsibilities to prevent driver fatigue and ensure drivers can comply with the legal work/rest hours. If your actions, inactions or demands cause or contribute to road safety breaches then you can be legally accountable. Authorities will investigate the supply chain and up and down the corporate chain of command. The days of ‘all care and no responsibility’ are over.

Who Are The Parties In The Supply Chain?

Everyone in the ‘Chain of Responsibility’ includes but is not limited to:

  • Consignors
  • Packers
  • Loaders/Unloaders
  • Drivers
  • Schedulers
  • Operators
  • Receivers

Everyone in the ‘Corporate Chain of Command’ includes but is not limited to:

  • Coworkers
  • Managers
  • Supervisors
  • CEO


Chain of Responsibility training is one of the first and most important steps to take to ensure you or your company isn’t liable under the CoR and OH&S Legislation. If you’re a Consignor or Receiver, a Packer, or Loader/Unloader, a Scheduler or Operator, or a Driver, you are part of the Chain of Responsibility and you or your company could be fined!

But you can’t get away with just any old training with a couple of Power Point Slides and some pictures! The logistics industry has made it very clear what is the benchmark for COR related training: The nationally recognised units of competency courses released in 2012 by the Transport and Logistics Industry Skills Council (TLISC). These courses set the standard for Chain of Responsibility training in Australia.

They can only be delivered by a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), and on completion participants receive an official Statement of Attainment, which indicates they’ve satisfactorily completed the accredited course and assessments. CORAustralia prides itself in delivering the very best quality, most comprehensive, and useful-to-the-company training courses in Australia. There are very few RTO’s that actually train these courses at all, and some that do are really just “token” courses which provide very little useful value to the participants and the Company paying for them.

We also do provide short introduction/awareness courses, because we know that some companies want all their staff to be informed, but they don’t need them to do the full RTO courses, with the associated assessment requirements. For these courses, we don’t issue a Statement of Attainment, instead we issue a Certificate of Completion.

The table below outlines all the COR courses we offer. Click on the links in the Right Column for more information on each one.
