Accreditation

Trucksafe: The Bonney Group, through Lloyds North were the first companies in Tasmania to achieve Truck Safe accreditation. Truck Safe is a nationally recognised heavy transport accreditation scheme focused on driver health and fatigue management training and vehicle maintenance.

AS4801: Lloyds North is committed to the highest possible standards of both quality and occupational health and safety and has accreditation to AS4801 standard.

To achieve accreditation at this level Lloyds North has implemented a Safety Management System which includes organisational structure, planned activities, responsibilities, practices and procedures which allows management or elimination of any OH&S risks associated with the Lloyds North business.

The aim of the system is to support the achievement of the highest levels of OHS performance through systematic elimination of workplace risks. This is designed to lead to a reduction in workplace injury and meet all legal requirements.

National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation (NHVAS):  A formal process for recognising heavy vehicle operators who have robust safety and other management systems in place.  It is also increasingly being used to show compliance with general duty requirements under road transport law and is adopted across the Energy Solutions companies.

In order to achieve compliance our companies are required to meet set standards and are subject to regular external audit of our safety and management systems.

The Bonney Group currently holds the following NHVAS accreditations -

Lloyds North

Basic Fatigue Management and Mass Management

Caltas

Environment

The Bonney Group is committed to a proactive approach to sustainability and the environment with all facets of its business. This commitment starts with our Company Environmental Policy and initiatives such as membership to the Australian Government's Greenhouse Challenge.

The Bonney Group engages staff with its practical approach to reducing waste, emission measurement and the development of strategies to be more energy efficient. This approach ensures that our people are committed to a measurable improvement of our carbon footprint.

We have:

  • Replaced fleet with late model, lower emission engines (Euro 5 standard).
  • Trained and evaluated operators in Standard Operating Procedures, ensuring a safe, reliable and efficient execution of resources.
  • GPS tracking systems to ensure efficient utilisation of fleet.
  • Implemented recycling of paper, glass, printer cartridges and other waste.
  • Promoted environmental awareness to our staff and customers through bulletins and newsletters.

Reducing Fuel Usage

The Bonney Group has installed MTData — GPS Systems into most of our heavy vehicle fleet units.  This system is used as a tracking device for ease of scheduling fuel deliveries and also gives detailed reports on how the vehicle and driver has been performing, including efficiency and safety.

Management compares the truck performances with the highest benchmarks available and is constantly working with drivers for improvement by sharing this data.

MTData is a proven fuel saving system with the added benefits of tracking and data communication devices. The Bonney Group is a leading innovative and environmentally conscious company within the transport industry.
