An investigation into a recent workplace incident revealed an unrelated potential risk for drivers of commercial vehicles. It has been identified that some commercial vehicle drivers have been undertaking periods of non-work time in a moving vehicle in which the cab does not meet the design requirements of Australian Design Rule 42/04. This increases the risk of driver fatigue when non-work time is taken by commercial vehicle drivers (two-up driving team) in a moving vehicle that does not meet those design requirements.
