Also covered are drivers working in long-distance operations in the private transport industry as defined in the Road Transport (Long Distance Operations) Award 2010 that has been in force since 1 July 2012.

Whistleblower protection, a drug and alcohol policy, payment times and safe driving plans are among the draft provisions.
