Our Val­ue For Safety

The De Bruyn Group of Companies has used its extensive knowledge base and research capabilities to build and implement safety policies and procedures tailored to the variety of work that we do. Underpinning all of this is our commitment to an ISO31000 approach to Risk Management and TruckSafe and specifically the elements regarding effective management practices for Fatigue, Speeding, Mass, Dimension, and Load Restraint and Vehicle Standards and Maintenance Management.

One of the key focus areas for us has been near-miss/incident reporting. We encourage early reporting, with our investigations being focused on causation and learning rather than blame. Our investigations are undertaken by an Incident Cause Analysis Method (ICAM) qualified Lead Investigator who focuses on closing gaps and communicating learnings. In addition, our Investigator spends a significant amount of time researching and understanding human behaviour and how this contributes to risks, hazards and appropriate control measures.

Additionally, we have implemented a strong internal audit program where everything from licence and pressure vessel expiries and processes through to inductions and even Good Food Handling practices (for our Cold Storage personnel) are monitored and refreshed when required. This helps us to close gaps, amend old procedures and generally provides an important layer of governance and transparency to what we do. In short, it links back to our goal of ‘Safely Delivering the Goods’.
