Safety excellence requires high level of commitment from companies

Business leaders have a lot on their minds. When they are not fine-tuning their business strategies or looking for new ways to optimise operations, they are interrogating local and international market trends, sourcing new talent and exploring potential innovations. These demands don’t leave much time for the consideration of workplace safety and its long-term benefits for the organisation.

The trailer’s concentrated load rating of 55 tons in 12.5 feet of deck allows owners to haul a variety of equipment, including rollers, pavers, excavators and dozers.

We’ve eliminated that hassle and the extra expen…
