The ARTSA Institute has been established in 2019 to respond the challenge of change. The world as we know it is changing rapidly. Governments are responding but often slower than change itself. The Institute aims to:

  • Influence the debate around framing policies for the industry
  • Provide evidence-based data and research to influence policy decisions.
  • Provide guidance to industry and stakeholders to improve the safety, productivity and environmental impacts of the industry

An Institute Advisory Board is headed by ARTSA Chair Martin Toomey and includes five of our ARTSA-i Life Members - Gary Liddle, David Anderson, Peter Hart, Gerard Waldron and Rob Perkins. Its challenges going forward are to:

  • Develop forward thinking proposals that will benefit the road transport industry and the communities at large
  • Join the dots across the industry and make informed proposals
    – Influence the debate around framing regulations for the entire industry
  • Train the next generation of future leaders
    – Events and opportunities to become actively engaged in shaping the road transport industry
    – Form research partnerships with Academics and Industry
    – Leverage off our ARTSA-i Life Members experience and advice
  • Current Institute projects include:
    – Developing Truck Fires Guidance and communications program to reduce the incidence of the increasing number of costly and disruptive truck fires
    – Replacement Parts Project – to reduce the use of poor-quality parts being used for safety critical heavy vehicle parts
    – Brake Calculator Project – to provide the industry with a world leading brake calculator for accessing compliance with ADRs.
