  • Posted on Thursday 10th, August 2017.

Tickets to the National Bulk Tanker Association’s (NBTA) annual Bulk Tanker Day on 31 August at Sydney Motorsport Park are selling fast, with only three weeks to go until the event. 

NBTA has confirmed more details of its “Science of Safety” program, which will include a hands on driver simulator experience, a world first carbon fibre 'tanktainer' on show and a live fire demonstration, said NBTA Executive Director, Rob Perkins.

Along with supplier demonstrations, the NBTA will also release the latest tanker accident data survey. 

“Compiled every six months it, it is providing really valuable feedback to industry and allowing us to have discussions with the regulatory and enforcement community on joint strategies to improve safety outcomes,” said Rob Perkins.

The program includes presentations on industry performance from RMS, Fire and Rescue, EPA NSW and NTI Insurance. It will also look at the road ahead in terms of inspection programs, new tanker standards, safety technologies and how to manage fatigue and distraction as well as a discussion on a national tanker safety strategy.

The day is rounded off with a Fire and Rescue emergency response exercise where the red trucks and the latest technology are put through their paces.

“Its an annual safety driven discussion we have with the tanker community.  Now in its ninth year it is a perfect blend of displays, discussions and demonstrations that bring all the parties together,” said Rob Perkins.
