Followmont were once again recognized for industry excellence at the 2017 QTA Annual Awards night. Thanks to the continued commitment of our H&S team, the entire Operations team and our dedicated Drivers, Followmont took out the Industry Safety Award.
QTA selected Followmont for leading new safety initiatives to ensure the safety of our staff, clients and public. With the increasing importance of Chain of Responsibility (COR) and the upcoming changes in 2018, our teams have been going above and beyond to focus on compliance and ensure the safety of our people. To take Followmont’s COR to the next level, the team implemented an improved checklist and Standard Operating Procedure, outlining the requirements for the completion of Load Departure Compliance Checks. The simple but effective audit procedure is just one of the ways our teams are continually improving on best practice.
This award is a credit to all Followmont employees who are working together to guarantee safety is a top priority.
