Linfox achieves safety milestone

Despite the heightened atmosphere COVID-19 has brought to logistics and road transport operators, Linfox has realised exceptional numbers around its safety performance.

The leading logistics and freight company announced it had met its target of a single-digit total recordable injury frequency rate at the end of the financial year 2019-2020.

Closely monitoring and adopting the advice of federal and state governments, Linfox said it had educated team members to minimise the risk of COVID-19 infection including physical distancing, good hygiene practices and reminding drivers to wear gloves while refuelling.

“This is an outstanding achievement, particularly as servicing this level of demand always presents risks,” said National Operations Manager Safety and Sustainability, Mick Davson.

“Linfox sites have introduced physical distancing, strict cleaning schedules, additional personal protective equipment, hand sanitiser stations and health monitoring for team members,” he said. 

“We are also actively reminding our people of the free counselling support services available for them and their family members through our Healthy Fox Employee Assistance Program.”

Linfox had also created an Emergency Management Intranet hub for all COVID-19 support resources.

A major focus was to ensure all team members complied with government travel and quarantine requirements which had been problematic for the heavy vehicle goods sector in response to further lockdowns imposed in August.
