The Scheduler is an easy to use tool that lets operators set up routine Schedules (or even one-off schedules) and then print them out for the driver in a simple format, showing the start time and location of each Rest Period and Work Period; and with just one click you can adjust the start time and the entire schedule adjusts automatically.

The Fatigue Management laws for truck operations require that Schedulers (ie those who allocate truck operations work to drivers and/or set timelines for that work) must meet the legislated Scheduler's Duty of Care which is to: 

  • ENSURE that the schedules they establish and provide to drivers comply with the Driving Hours and Fatigue Management laws AND that they do NOT cause the Driver to exceed an applicable speed limit
  • SPEED: The Scheduler must NOT cause the Driver, whose schedule was prepared by the Scheduler, to drive a HV unless they have complied with the Scheduler’s Duty of Care; and
  • The schedule allows the Driver to complete the journey without exceeding any applicable speed limit, in any reasonably foreseeable circumstances.

For a Reasonable Steps Defence you must PROVE the Schedule was legal - so having a printed copy of the Schedule  that you worked out is smart. 

It can be time consuming to provide drivers with clear Schedules with details of departure and rest times and stops/starts and locations en-route, let alone showing the job can be done safely within the time allocated without speeding (which is what is required under the Speed Compliance laws). In addition the start time often changes, so using a fixed schedule may lead to driver errors in understanding when they need to be at certain locations. The Authorities may consider fixed start schedules as applying pressure on the driver to make up the lost time.  

The Scheduler solves these problems. The Scheduler is an easy to use tool that lets operators set up routine Schedules (or even one-off schedules) and then print them out for the driver in a simple format, showing the start time and location of each Rest Period and Work Period. The Schedule (above) shows the hours involved in each leg and for the whole trip and if you enter the kms for each leg, it also displays the average speed for each leg. The Scheduler therefore provides  a useful guide for the driver as well as evidence that you met your Scheduler's Duty of Care under the Fatigue and Speed laws - at least for the trip set out in the schedule.
 
A simple Click to Change the Start Time Automatically Adjusts the Whole Schedule
Trip departure times are often delayed but with just one click you can select a new departure time and the Scheduler automatically adjusts all Rest and Work times. One more click and the Schedule is automatically printed out for the driver or filing. The system requirement is Microsoft Excell 2003 or later.
