TruckSafe has today welcomed McKelvey Livestock Haulage and Harrold Services as newly accredited members.
An industry initiative, TruckSafe is a world-class business and risk management system aimed at improving the professionalism and safety of trucking operators nationwide and delivering competitive advantages to accredited operators.
“In an industry that is constantly changing, there is no better way to keep up to date with compliance requirements than to be TruckSafe accredited,” TruckSafe Chair Ferdie Kroon said.
“Becoming TruckSafe member means you are committed to safety and have best-practice systems in place.
“While this year we have celebrated some of our longstanding members with 15 and 20-year TruckSafe awards, it’s great to see new members joining those who have been in the scheme for so long,” he said.
Based in Cannon Valley, Queensland, McKelvey Livestock Haulage is a family business that uses the latest equipment to cover all cattle transport needs, safely and on time.
Established in 2015, Harrold Services is a transport company based in Penola, South Australia. Owned and managed by husband and wife team Pat and Amanda Harrold, the business runs B-double tippers and a log truck across the country.
“By joining TruckSafe, these companies have demonstrated a commitment to foster a strong culture of safety in every part of their business,” Mr Kroon said.
“TruckSafe delivers significant and measurable benefits to our members including client confidence, increased productivity, improved safety outcomes, cost savings and business management solutions.
“Last year we saw big changes to truck safety laws and the introduction of the new master industry code of practice. In challenging times that may lead to operators becoming confused and frustrated, TruckSafe plays an important role in providing members with confidence of compliance and safety,” he said.
