The NHVR has announced it has approved a fifth Electronic Work Diary (EWD) option for heavy vehicle drivers with the approval of the Quallogi system by Kynection, which is in fact the first approved EWD system compatible with Apple iOS, as well as Android.
NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto said the Quallogi EWD would be available for use as an official record for heavy vehicle driver work and rest hours from May 25.
“Drivers have been switching over to using an Electronic Work Diary since we approved the first system in December last year and it’s great to see Quallogi is also available as an alternative to the National Written Work Diary,” Mr Petroccitto said.
“The introduction of EWDs means drivers can record their work and rest hours by pressing a button, rather than spending time ruling lines and counting multiple time periods on multiple pieces of paper.
“The Quallogi includes features, such as alerts, to assist drivers to manage their compliance with work and rest rules.”
The Quallogi system is available on selected devices, which are outlined on the NHVR website with Sal Petroccitto signing the Kynection EWD certificate while visiting the Brisbane Truck Show.
Thwe NHVR says it’s important that drivers check the NHVR website to ensure they’re using an EWD approved by the NHVR.
Drivers must continue to carry their written work diary for a transition period, to ensure that they comply with the requirement of carrying 28 days of records.
