The Australian Trucking Association’s accreditation program, TruckSafe has been shortlisted for an Excellence in Professional Development award in the annual Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport honours night.
More than 820 businesses have adopted the TruckSafe program, which sets standards in areas of management, operation and safety.
In its nomination to CILT for the Excellence in Professional Development Award, National Transport Insurance (NTI) endorsed TruckSafe’s nomination stating the TruckSafe program provides for an operational and management infrastructure that creates an environment for operators and staff to be better than the rest.
TruckSafe Chairman Stephen Marley said the nomination is a testament to the commitment its members have made.
“To be a finalist for this award recognises the members of the TruckSafe accreditation program and their commitment during the last 20 years for choosing to underpin safety and professional development in their business operations. These businesses have come a long way,” he said.
Fellows Bulk Transport operator Paul Fellows says the accreditation program is a key part of the way his business is run.
“We pride ourselves on our safety, well maintained equipment, professional staff, and our professional business systems. TruckSafe has and continues to be an integral part of our success.”
