New regulations may make the use of certain reporting systems and data capturing technology mandatory, to improve safety within the logistics industry.

Commitments made at the recent Supply Chain Safety and Compliance Summit in Melbourne indicate aim to bring about a greater alignment between emerging chain of responsibility and the more traditional work health and safety laws.

ALC managing director Michael Kilgariff says the two-day summit, attended by 250 people from across the logistics industry, should help to progress new safety regulations.

"The summit reinforced ALC’s position as Australia’s leading industry advocate for supply chain safety and compliance," Kilgariff says.

"The event was an important opportunity for industry to come together to identify where we are going well and where improvements are needed."

The focus of day one was on recent changes to chain of responsibility regulations, and day two offered practical advice on how to meet specific chain of responsibility obligations.
