Freight and Personal Safety
Our company takes chain of responsibility seriously. We monitor drivers for fatigue management and for speed & load control. Drivers are trained in all aspects of fatigue management, road safety, load management, pre-trip checks, equipment management, personal safety (including hygiene, sun safety, healthy eating), PPE, emergency response, working at height, mass management, using dunnage, assessing risk, dangerous goods. They are tested on this every 6 months.
Our drivers and offsiders are trained in the use of and comply with the National guidelines on COVID19 work safe practices. We require drivers and offsiders to use paid accommodation on their long distance journeys to afford rest, better hygiene and stopping for meals in accordance with basic fatigue management. Food allowances provide drivers and offsiders to prepare their own meals or purchase them from truck stops along the way. Whilst drivers and offsiders can choose to stay in the vehicle and use the roadhouse facilities, we prefer them to use pre-paid, booked hotel or cabin accommodation. We take our fatigue management seriously.
All staff & drivers use Personal Protective Equipment including masks & use hand sanitizer daily. Gloves are used when needed. All staff and drivers are trained in the appropriate use of PPE and sanitisation procedures. Anyone who enters our office is required to use hand sanitizer and a mask before entry. Sanitisation procedures are followed by all staff for shared space, equipment and common touch areas including vehicle refuelling and vehicle touch points, according to the company protocols in place since May 2020 and in compliance with the Queensland Government Public Health Directions since May 2020. Our drivers and offsiders are trained in the use of and comply with the National guidelines on COVID19 work safe practices.
