Our unwavering commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace has seen TruckEast receive the Alcumus SafeContractor accreditation.
Employing just over 400 employees, TruckEast prides itself on its service offering to its customer base in East Anglia that spans a variety of industries. With 13 Scania dealerships, 1 Isuzu service centre, vehicle maintenance units and trailer maintenance sites, health and safety standards are crucial to TruckEast’s ever growing infrastructure.
Utilising good risk management and having stringent policies in place are everyday practice for the Suffolk based group, where health and safety is the backbone of the operation.
Compliance and HR General Manager, Helen Moore comments, “Delivering the highest possible standards of health and safety is taken very seriously at TruckEast. Our aim as a business is to keep our customers moving and our health and safety standards and procedures enable us to do this in the safest possible way for all involved.”
“Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies in place. SafeContractor plays a vital role in supporting clients to meet their compliance needs.”
