The Log Transport Safety Council (LTSC) is a pan industry collaborative of Truck operators, Transport Researchers, Trailer Manufacturers, Forest Owners, Legislators and Enforcement agencies – and is recognized as the premier source of Log Transport research and industry knowledge that leads the world in innovative, sustainable and safe best practice log transport operations.
Log Transport Safety Council (LTSC): - Background
The Land Transport Safety Authority (LTSA) called a meeting in late 1996 inviting the Forest Owners Association, selected Log Transport Operators, Road Transport Forum, Trailer manufacturers, Transport Engineers and the Logging Industry Research Organisation (LIRO).
Through a concerted effort in these three key areas, the efforts of the LTSC have had significant positive impact not only on the rate of trailer roll-overs, but on the overall safety of the sector as a whole.
Log Transport Safety Council (LTSC): - Sector Group
Since 1996, the LTSC has undertaken considerable ground breaking work in several areas within the Log Transport Sector. Some examples of this are listed below:
The result of such work has resulted in the LTSC having now been accepted by the NZTA as a credible industry organization to work with and are invited to make comment on any new laws/rules the Government are planning to introduce or change. The LTSC only comment on issues relating to safety and are not seen as a Political organization.
The Fit for the Road programme is about log truck drivers making a commitment to a healthy lifestyle. more >
