At the forefront of environmental and safety standards, our nationwide haulier network delivers our products where they need to be, when they need to be. Logistics play a critical part of driving some of the UK's construction projects forward, keeping Aggregate Industries at the heart of construction.
Highways Network Spot Checks
The Highways Network are carrying-out vehicle spot checks at many major contractor sites. We have already seen such checks carried-out at Balfour Beatty sites, and have been warned of upcoming checks at Costain sites. They are checking a range of compliance issues (O-license, driving licenses, vehicle condition), many of which could be picked-up by driver walk-around checks. So far circa 50% of vehicles checked have been found to have a problem of some sort, especially with respect to tyre conditions.
Please ensure your drivers are conducting their checks to be confident that you are compliant in all areas.
Health & Safety
Health & Safety is our number 1 priority; our long term vision is Zero Harm
Do you know how to download your vehicle camera footage?
Recently hauliers have claimed that they do not know how to download footage from their vehicle camera's after an incident, everytime the haulier fails to provide their insurance company with a copy of the footage this could then attract a rise in the next years premiums.
Around 95% of footage provided reveals that the driver was not at fault.
Below are various links to vehicle camera companies that have fitted camera systems to AI vehicles:
The overall health and wellbeing of our employees is a key priority for Aggregate Industries and, in conjunction with the continuing focus on excellence in safety practices, plays a significant contribution in our journey to strive for zero harm to our people. Healthier people are safer people.
Are you a new haulier or a haulier with a new driver joining you?
Aggregate Industries are introducing a ‘New Haulier / Driver’ approval process to ensure that all new drivers, driving either a tipper or a mixer, are aware of a set of key safety requirements when undertaking deliveries on behalf of Aggregate Industries.
Aggregate Industries have developed an online eTOT to help with the required induction before you can deliver to any Major Scheme or Contracting site. The SDCC (Safe Delivery Continued Competence) is a simple step in the right direction to ensure that site safety is trained and maintained.
