If you’re in road freight you want your drivers out and about delivering loads safely on time. Unfortunately the road freight industry has a relatively high rate of injuries, which is reflected in a relatively high levy rate. Each year ACC spends about $20 million to support approximately 4,500 injury claims that come from the road freight transport sector.
ACC Fleet Saver programme (ACC Fleet Saver) addresses a priority issue for New Zealand: the unacceptably high incidence and costs of heavy truck accidents on our roads. A complete package covering workplace, on-road and in-cab safety, the programme offers levy reductions to eligible businesses who demonstrate a strong safety culture and a commitment to the highest standards of safety among their employees.
