Cash-in-transit guidance material

The General guide for managing cash-in-transit security risks provides information for persons conducting a business or undertaking on how to manage cash-in-transit security risks, usually involving armoured or non-armoured vehicle operations.

A sample form for documenting the risk management process for cash-in-transit activities can also be found here.

The Information Sheet: Cash-in-Transit has been developed to provide advice for small businesses on managing risks from cash-in-transit activities.

The Guide for handling and transporting cash is directed at businesses handling or transporting cash ‘in-house’, for example where a worker or business owner transports cash from the workplace to a bank, rather than engaging a security provider for these services. This Guide was previously published in May 2013 and has now been updated. An amendments table advising the changes that were made along with the previous document versions is available here.

The word ‘should’ is used in these documents to indicate a recommended course of action, while ‘may’ is used to indicate an optional course of action.

The words ‘must’, ‘requires’ or ‘mandatory’ indicate that a legal requirement exists in the WHS laws and must be complied with.

(These documents were published without all accessibility requirements for electronic documents met. Accessible word and PDF versions that meet all accessibility requirements are now available. These versions replace the previous ‘inaccessible’ versions.)
