We have a legal and moral responsibility to ensure that all of our drivers, clients, suppliers as well as the general public are not hurt or injured in the course, or as a result, of performing our services.
We take this responsibility extremely seriously – both prior to commencing and ongoing through the duration our engagement. No delivery, collection or urgent request is more important that the health and well-being of our stakeholders.
Prior to engaging any services, SGS Logistics will;
- Review the task and services to establish the potential hazards involved
- Instil or develop any relevant controls, SOP’s or specialised training documents relevant to the task and hazards
- Establish a hazard register to ensure that any risks have controls and the hazards are continuously monitored and reviewed.
- Engage both our clients and drivers on the hazards present to reduce or remove them where possible.
- Ensure compliance in all elements of Chain of Responsibility (COR) that are relevant.
At SGS Logistics we have an extensive 17 step induction and driver training program that has been externally audited to comply with the highest standards. No driver will perform a service for us until this has been completed.
We cover areas such as Manual Handling techniques, Load Restraint and Fatigue Management. We also include clear and specific policies and SOP’s on areas such as Professional Appearance, Communication and Drug & Alcohol policies.
You can be assured that SGS Logistics will not compromise on our OH&S requirements, and will cease engagement with any organisation that does not share our position on the importance of safety.
