In News1 MinutesBy NZ Trucking magazineSeptember 8, 2021

TransDiesel has achieved Gold Sitewise certification and has retained its ACC Tertiary Accredited Employers Programme recognition.

TransDiesel has more than 250 employees spread over 16 different locations.

Sitewise is an industry recognised standard relating to health and safety of a business and achieving accreditation displays that a business has high quality systems in operation throughout the workplace.

Factors taken into consideration during an assessment include site-specific safety plans, accident/incident reporting and investigation, hazard management, training, employee and subcontractor engagement.

Being awarded the Gold Standard meant TransDiesel achieved 90% or above on its annual assessment.

Retention of the ACC Tertiary Accredited Employers Programme standard was achieved via a series of workplace reviews relating to policies and procedures, as well as ongoing commitment on the part of the business to injury prevention and rehabilitation.

“TransDiesel has a longstanding reputation based on providing the best sales and service back-up to our customers, and it’s important to show that we, as a company, want to do the same for our employees,” said Shane Palmer, TransDiesel health and safety business partner.

“Achieving accreditation illustrates the value we put on the wellbeing and safety of our people and demonstrates we’re committed to providing the very best workplace for our staff.”
