Alternative fatigue management scheme

Published: | Category: Manuals | Audience: Heavy vehicle operators

An alternative fatigue management scheme (AFMS) is a risk management scheme that, once approved by the NZ Transport Agency, allows commercial operators greater flexibility in their operations.

In an AFMS each operator develops systems and processes that manage work and rest time limits for their drivers while ensuring that fatigue is proactively managed.

The following documents provide additional information that may assist you when considering if an AFMS is an appropriate tool for your business, including relevant application forms.
