Safety & Security
Underpinning the culture and founding principles of Driver Bus Lines is an investment in safety and security for our customers and our employees. We are compliant with all Occupational Health and Safety practises and are constantly striving for improvement.
Driver Bus Lines fleet is fully accredited by an independent Government body, Transport Safety Victoria, according to the Bus Safety Act 2009. Our fleet maintenance in Melbourne and on the Peninsula is managed and monitored both internally by our highly skilled Maintenance Engineers and audited externally by Transport Safety Victoria. Vehicle servicing, vehicle defects and vehicle repairs are recorded in a comprehensive electronic maintenance system which allows detailed service records and monitoring along with significant data to improve reliability and efficiency.
For safety and security on board our vehicles we offer lap sash seat belts, digital GPS tracking, digital two way communication, Emergency Duress System, a comprehensive Emergency Management Plan and even before you travel all vehicles are securely garaged at our depots with automatic security gates and yard surveillance.
Our bus maintenance workshops, body shop and depot parking, fuelling and cleaning areas are constantly monitored for safety with an internal Risk Manager and regular external Worksafe inspections. Driver Bus Lines carries full insurance including $30M Public Liability.
Our driving staff are supported by a full time in house Certificate III Driver Trainer and our companies Key Performance Indicators allow senior managers and directors to monitor driving standards, accidents, complaints and compliments. We also adhere to a Drug and Alcohol Policy which includes drug and alcohol testing of all driving staff and we ensure our drivers are current with accreditation and working with children licenses.
Driver Bus Lines belief is that with a constant focus and continually updating and reviewing our processes and practises within the workplace, we will provide a safe and secure environment for our employees and customers.
