WA Heavy Vehicle Accreditation (WAHVA) – JMH Training & Compliance

This is mandatory for individuals and organisations that require a permit or notice to perform any transport task as part of a commercial business or for profit within Western Australia, including interstate operators.

What is WA Heavy Vehicle Accreditation (WAHVA)?

Getting an accreditation in WAHVA

The path to achieving Western Australian Heavy Vehicle Accreditation (WAHVA) involves three modules:

  • Fatigue
  • Vehicle Maintenance
  • Dimension and Loading

Your responsibilities

Understand the required modules

Operators are required to incorporate the three modules – Fatigue, Vehicle Maintenance, Dimension and Loading – into their daily work practices.

There is one optional module -The Mass Management Module – which is only required to be undertaken if an operator wishes to operate within the Accredited Mass Management Scheme (AMMS).

Benefits to your business

Operator accreditation will improve compliance with Transport laws through a complementary reduction in the on-road enforcement for operators who can demonstrate a high degree of assured compliance.

Major benefits of accreditation will be an enhanced image for the transport industry as one that is safe and responsible, with high professional standards. Further benefits include:

  • Improvements in safety
  • Quality assured compliance
  • Consistent standards
  • Transparency and accountability
  • Improved community confidence
  • Preservation of the road infrastructure
  • Increase in the productivity of the transport industry through adoption of sound management practices

Main Roads WA will approve and manage accreditation in Western Australia. Accreditation does not exempt operators from complying with other requirements of the Road Traffic (Vehicles) Act 2012.
