National Occupational Standard Toolkit
The work of a commercial vehicle operator (truck driver) can be varied. Many of these individuals will require job-specific knowledge, skills and abilities that apply to specific workplaces, industries and commodities.
This National Occupational Standard clearly defines the core knowledge, skills and abilities that are shared by the widest-possible array of commercial vehicle operators (truck drivers) and typically developed early in a career.
Access the National Occupational Standard for Commercial Vehicle Operator here.

Physical Demands Assessments
Physical Demands Assessments (PDAs) identify the physical job requirements for specific occupations. Once employers are aware of the physical requirements of the job, current employees and new hires can be assessed to determine if they can perform the physical duties. If required, potential accommodations can be put in place to allow workers from various under-represented groups to not only perform, but thrive, in their roles – a mutually beneficial outcome for both workers and employers.

A modern workforce is one that addresses harassment and violence in the workplace
Trucking HR Canada’s (THRC) Workplace Harassment and Violence (WHV) bilingual suite of resources and training is a leading industry program.

As leaders in delivering evidence-based HR solutions for employers our training, and supplementary suite of workplace harassment and violence resources meet HR standards of excellence and all compliance requirements of the new federal Workplace Harassment and Violence Prevention Regulations.
This program was developed in partnership with Labour Canada, labour groups, employment lawyers, and HR professionals. It is delivered in partnership with the Canadian Trucking Alliance and all provincial associations. Click here to review the key elements of our program.

Bill C-65 introduced new Workplace Harassment and Violence Prevention Regulations–effective as of January 1st, 2021. What does this mean for your organization?
Federally regulated employers will have new obligations to:
- Prevent workplace harassment and violence.
- Respond effectively and in a timely manner to incidents.
- Support for affected employees.
Based on these three pillars, the new Regulations introduce requirements that all federally regulated employers must meet:
- Implementing joint roles and responsibilities shared with either the policy committee, the workplace committee, or the workplace health and safety representative;
- Assessing the risk of harassment and violence in the workplace and developing a prevention plan;
- Developing emergency procedures for critical incidents in the workplace;
- Developing a new Workplace Harassment and Violence Prevention Policy;
- Following new requirements, timelines, and procedures related to the complaint resolution process;
- Providing more options for workers to have their issues resolved (respecting employee rights to request formal investigation);
- Appointing a Designated Recipient of workplace harassment and violence complaints;
- Providing mandatory workplace harassment and violence prevention training;
- Providing information on local support services to help employees recover and return to work after an incident of workplace harassment and violence; and
- Record-keeping and reporting requirements.
