Australian Steel Industry Logistics Safety Code

The Australian Steel Industry Logistics Safety Code (ASI LSC) is designed to ensure that all participants are aware of their responsibilities in the supply chain when they control or influence the safe and legal carriage of freight.

The purpose of this Code is to provide guidance to the Australian Steel Industry in relation to:

  • Controlling, managing, operating and auditing of Heavy Vehicle road transport freight movements;
  • Minimising the risk along the steel supply chain associated with freight movements; and
  • Complying with the Chain of Responsibility legislation, which imposes liability for Heavy Vehicle offences on all people and / or businesses whose actions, inactions or demands influence conduct on the road as well as on-road parties such as Drivers and Carriers.
