3 Getting started Page 3 The ACC Fleet Saver audit standard is used by ACC-approved Auditors to undertake audits of registered owners wanting to enter into the ACC Fleet Saver programme. The ACC Fleet Saver audit standard is comprised of nine (9) critical elements - 7 of the critical elements are modeled on the Workplace Safety Management Practices (WSMP) audit standard. Two critical elements are specific to the fleet industry. The ACC Fleet Saver audit standard will be used by ACC to: o assess the safety systems of fleet operators to determine the levy they will be charged on their vehicle licensing fee o encourage safer fleet on-road and workplace practices o reward those registered owners who implement safe on-road and workplace practices. What does the audit standard cover? The audit standards cover the following critical elements: 1. Registered owner commitment to safety management practices 2. Fleet safe driving practices 3. Fleet vehicle selection and maintenance 4. Hazard identification, assessment and management 5. Incident and injury reporting, recording and investigation 6. Employee participation in health and safety management 7. Emergency planning and readiness 8. Contractor and sub-contractor management 9. Workplace observation What are the three levels of performance? Within the audit standards there are three (3) levels of performance which are shown below and shaded as indicated. The registered owner has developed and implemented policies and procedures that demonstrate their commitment to continuously improve on-road and workplace safety, and injury prevention. The registered owner has systems in place to enable continuous improvement through training and other means. The registered owner has advanced systems in place that demonstrate continuous improvement in on-road and workplace health and safety. Bronze Silver Gold Achieving the audit standard Dependent on the outcome of the audit, three levels of performance in the form of differentiated goods service vehicle (GSV) classes that reflect lower risk from active use of good safety management practices will be provided. To enter the ACC Fleet Saver programme, a fleet operator must meet all of the bronze level requirements in each critical element of the audit standard. The audit provides ACC with a snapshot of a registered owner s on-road and workplace health and safety practices. It is the registered owner s responsibility to ensure they continue to meet or exceed the audit requirements on a day to day basis.
4 Page 4 While not compulsory, registered owners who meet the bronze entry level requirements are encouraged to progress through to silver and gold levels in future audits. Tips on using this document An applicant must complete the following steps to join the ACC Fleet Saver programme. Step 1 before applying to the programme, a Self-Assessment form must be completed for every critical element of the audit standard. This provides an indication of whether the applicant has the required knowledge and ability to demonstrate safety practices in their business and is ready to be audited. Step 2 when applying to join the programme, an applicant must complete the Application form to start the audit process. Step 3 once an applicant becomes a member of the programme for 4 years, should they wish to continue their membership, they must complete a new application form. This allows ACC to audit their business again and determine their eligibility to maintain their Fleet Saver membership. All forms are available either in printed or electronic format. How does this audit standard apply to the registered owner? The audit standard should not be viewed as specific in terms of specifying who needs to meet particular requirements. Rather, all of those covered by an ACC Fleet Saver application (whether a single registered owner, or a group of registered owners) must meet all of the requirements to meet the requirements of the audit standard. For example A Fleet Saver application may cover Company A, B, C. Each of these companies individually needs to meet the requirements of the audit standard. They cannot pick and choose which part of the audit standard they meet (i.e. Company A cannot meet the requirements for elements 1-3, Company B meets all of the requirements of elements 4-6 etc). Each company, contractor, or registered owner receiving the levy reduction is assumed to have implemented and met all of the requirements. Definitions Registered owner An individual registered owner or group of registered owners, principals, applicants that employs one or more people for wages or salary. Senior Manager Chief Executive Officer, General Manager, Director, Self-employed person, Managers at the highest level of a company or organisation. Manager Someone with the delegation to hire, fire and/or supervise employees. The manager generally reports to a higher level of managers within the company or organisation. Employee A driver, contractor*, a health and safety manager, a fleet manager, any person employed by the registered owner for salary or wages Contractor A person, company or organisation that provides labour, performs services or undertakes work for a client under specific terms (as covered under HSE Amendment Act 2002). * viewed in the context of this audit only For more information For more information either contact or refer to: Measuring your capabilities in Fleet Safety Management, ACC Fleet Saver Audit Guidelines document your ACC relationship manager; or the ACC Business Service Centre on ; or
