Karlie Easter appointed to TruckSafe board

CaptureThe trucking industry’s safety accreditation program, TruckSafe, has appointed Karlie Easter from Queensland transport company K.S. Easter to the TruckSafe Board.

TruckSafe works to improve the safety and professionalism of trucking operators nationwide.

Mrs Easter has a Bachelor of Commerce with majors in Human Resources and Industrial Relations, and has previously been an Industrial Advocate for Commerce Qld and HR Manager for CitiStreet.

TruckSafe Chairman Stephen Marley said he was delighted to welcome Ms Easter to the Board.

“Karlie brings a new perspective to the TruckSafe board. As the Compliance manager for a successful TruckSafe accredited business, she has extensive on the ground experience with the day-to-day implementation of the program,” Mr Marley said.

“I welcome Karlie’s appointment, and I look forward to seeing her input into the TruckSafe program.”

Mrs Easter said she looked forward to working with the board as they continue to develop the TruckSafe program.

“As part of the board, I’ll be working to see greater recognition and incentives for operators who join the TruckSafe program,” Mrs Easter said.

“TruckSafe operators are operators who have gone beyond their legal requirements to make sure their business is safe, reliable and professional, and they deserve recognition for their efforts.

“I also aim to see TruckSafe building strong links with the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator, so operators know that their accreditation is recognised nationally.”
