Electronic Work Diary EWD

Electronic Work Diaries

Transtech’s premier fatigue management solution

Fatigue is one of the most important and highly legislated areas of the transport industry. Keeping on-top of driver fatigue can ensure all road users remain safe on Australian roads.Yet keeping up with Fatigue and a driver’s work diary can be difficult and is often fraught with difficulties, from counting time to incorrect use.


What is an EWD? Replacement for paper Fatigue laws
An EWD is a solution that allows the driver and operator to easily manage fatigue. From simple log book checkers through to advanced in-vehicle screens, this profound technology is now available to the industry in its many forms, with tangible benefits to all. Though legislation is currently being drafted to legally utilise an electronic fatigue management platform, the driver’s paper work diary/log book is still legally required to be kept up-to-date. The intent is to completely automate the fatigue process with a holistic solution that works through all States for the industry. Australian fatigue laws are comprehensive. These electronic solutions provide an intelligible view of driver fatigue management with everything from historic information, through to advanced reporting and real-time alerting.

This changes the ideology of Fatigue in the workplace, moving away from regulating hours and into the management of fatigue.


EWD’s are thought to be difficult to understand, even use. But this is not the case. It’s best to consider a few important pieces of information. The following diagram sets out how it works, and it’s nowhere near as difficult as you might think.
