Health and Safety

Freight Haulage and Winton Cranes were the primary site to renew the certification to be an accredited employer in 2016 under the ACC Partnership Programme. We met all the requirements that is required by ACC in how we manage the health and safety of our workforce. This enabled HW Richardson Group of companies to retain the Tertiary Level Accreditation.

We pride ourselves in involving our staff in all aspects of the health and safety within our business. We operate under a comprehensive procedure manual that not only provides a safe way of operating but also manages all the risk associated within their tasks and controls to assist them in completing them safely and efficiently.
