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
If you employ drivers who are a resident of the EU, you may already know that the rules changed from the start of the year. As part of the post-Brexit arrangements, the government introduced new rules for UK employers employing skilled migrant workers through the Skilled Worker and Intra-company Transfer routes.
Although you should conduct your own research, our understanding is that any skilled migrant drivers who were resident in the UK on or before 31 December 2020, should not apply for a visa under the points-based immigration system. They should instead apply to the EU Settlement Scheme. Applications are free and the deadline for applying is 30 June 2021.
Improving Aggregate Industries Customer Service With Order Tracking And Paperless Proof of Delivery
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.
Aggregate Industries are introducing a ‘New 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.
