There were two out of scope issues we heard through engagement that will be addressed through other NTC projects.
Request to provide guidance on mandatory screening for heavy vehicle drivers
In March 2022, infrastructure and transport ministers directed the NTC to investigate options to improve the diagnosis of sleep apnea, diabetes and cardiac risk levels in heavy vehicle drivers. Findings of this work may be incorporated into Assessing Fitness to Drive in the future.
Request to include guidance on “fitness for duty” for heavy vehicle drivers
The NTC is considering the definition of “fitness for duty” through their work on the Heavy Vehicle National Law Safety and Productivity Program.
To ask a question about either of these projects, or provide input for consideration, please email us.
