Agency Safety Risk Register

The Agency Safety Risk Register (ASRR) contains information about Roads and Maritime’s known WHS risks (hazardous events). This risk management tool provides a risk rating for each hazardous event and links to bow-tie diagrams which identify controls to manage these events. The ASRR is now available for Roads and Maritime workers. External parties can request a copy of the ASRR by emailing

An updated procedure is now available for consultation:

WHS risk management procedure (updated)

At Roads and Maritime, WHS risks are managed by seeking to eliminate risks so far as is reasonably practicable before seeking to minimise these risks. This procedure describes Roads and Maritime’s approach and processes to manage all foreseeable hazards and risks, so far as is reasonably practicable.

Heavy vehicle operations – Chain of Responsibility procedure and framework (new)

Roads and Maritime manages risks associated with heavy vehicle operations as part of the OneRMS SMS. Our focus is on understanding our legal obligations, our risks and the effectiveness of our risk controls under WHS and heavy vehicle national laws.

The procedure describes what needs to be done at an operational level to manage risks associated with heavy vehicle operations, details key roles and responsibilities, and provides guidance in preventing breaches under the heavy vehicle national law. This document is particularly relevant for responsible parties in the supply chain.

The framework sets out how CoR is integrated into the OneRMS SMS and how WHS processes are applied to manage CoR risks across the agency. This document is particularly relevant for the executive, senior managers and safety managers.

Please visit drafts for consultation for more information.
