Safety

Our Health, Safety and Environment Management System allows us to assess risk, identify workplace hazards and eliminate or control the associated hazards. We prevent injuries at our worksites by:

  • Focusing on education, awareness and prevention;
  • Ensuring employees and contractors are competent and have the training and experience to perform the assigned work saftely;
  • Communicating openly about safety successes and challenges;
  • Having an alcohol and drug free workplace that is strictly enforced;¬†
  • Having all employees trained for emergency situations; and
  • Continuously working with our customers to create a safe work environment.

Allen's Transport has had a Certificate of Recognition since 2004 and have two qualified internal auditors on staff which helps not only maitain our safety program but helps us to continue to make improvements.

Our safety performance demonstrates our leadership and commitment to safety which can only be sustained through ongoing and continuous improvement. Our goal is to ensure an incident/accident free workplace. In the event an incident does occur, corrective action is taken by implementing elimination, engineering and administration controls.

At Allen’s Transport Ltd. we are uncompromising in our commitment to safety. Regardless if you are an employee or one of our many customers, contractors or suppliers, our expectations are that everyone meets our safety standards.
