Two more transport companies benefit from TruckSafe

Playing it safe in the transport industry is crucial and safety accreditation programs like TruckSafe give transport companies and their customers a good measure of surety while promoting the professionalism of the industry.
The Chief Executive of the Australian Trucking Association, Stuart St Clair has welcomed Eagle Contractors (SA) and Hawkins Bulk Haulage (QLD) to the TruckSafe program.

“TruckSafe accredited businesses are some of Australia’s safest, because they go above and beyond the requirements of the law to meet the external TruckSafe standards and audits,” he said.

Starting out as an owner/driver operation in 2004, Eagle Contractors now has a fleet of four and an extensive range of equipment servicing the Adelaide region.

Scott Tregeagle, the Managing Director of Eagle Contractors, said his company’s major priorities were customer satisfaction, driver health and a well maintained fleet.

“I think TruckSafe is a great concept. It’s a selling point with our customers, and shows we’re dedicated to safety and have all our policies and procedures in place,” he said.

Administration Manager Dannielle Tregeagle said the company is very proud of the culture of continual improvement within the group.

“We regularly review our policies to make sure we’re as safe as we can be. It’s about being safe on the road, having safe vehicles, and looking after the environment,” she said.

“We just like to be professional.”

Hawkins Bulk Haulage Director Shane Hawkins said the TruckSafe program brought an extra degree of quality control and widened the horizons of his long-standing business.

“We’ve been running stock feed and grain around Queensland and northern NSW for the last 35 years – we joined the TruckSafe program to be a bit more professional and lay the groundwork for some bigger customers,” he said.
