ShopCare seeks to facilitate the retail and supply chain sectors to identify common risks and controls for working in and around vehicles and apply these controls to create a minimum safety standard for transport (including buyers, receivers, specifiers and suppliers of transport). These controls will contribute to a sector aligned charter with the intention of reducing high levels of harm over time and creating long-lasting cultural change.

ShopCare is currently focused on initial awareness building and engagement with businesses and relevant stakeholders. The development of a Charter will be reliant upon industry collaboration and we are seeking to establish a trial group. This is your opportunity to participate in an industry-leading initiative which will benefit a wide range of stakeholders. 

We are currently sourcing information on the following:

  • Heavy Goods Vehicles (3.5 tonne plus) Fleet Specifications

  • Site Traffic Management Plans

  • Critical Risks and Controls

  • Non-Critical Risks and Controls


We aim to facilitate information sharing and create a first view of common themes in 2021. This will be shared initially with our trial group, before broader dissemination to the industry.
