NHVAS Fatigue Management

(i) Basic Fatigue Management (BFM):

BFM replaces the Transitional Fatigue Management Scheme (TFMS). BFM accreditation offers more flexible hours and retains the ability to work 14 hour shifts.

BFM gives operators a greater say in when they can work and rest providing the risks of working long and night hours are properly managed.

(ii) Advanced Fatigue Management:

Advanced Fatigue Management (AFM) brings a genuine risk management approach to managing fatigue, rather than prescribing work and rest hours. It offers more flexible hours than Standard Hours or Basic Fatigue Management (BFM) in return for the operator demonstrating greater accountability for managing fatigue risks.

Under AFM drivers may be allowed to split their continuous rest break for more flexibility.

Additional requirements for Fatigue Management:

It is a requirement of both the Basic Fatigue Management and Advanced Fatigue Management that :

  • drivers are medically fit to drive and have had the appropriate periodic medical assessment. 
  • drivers and schedulers must undergo training and obtain the appropriate statement of attainment from a registered training organisation.

In addition, all AFM applications must be accompanied by a fatigue expert report.
