Health & Safety Policy
The Directors of Quickline Couriers Limited place health and safety as the most important factor in their activities as a logistics service provider. We accept that a quality business is by definition a safe business and it follows that minimising risk to people, property and our customers goods cannot be separated from any other business objectives.
It is acknowledged that the health effects at work may also influence an employee’s health away from the work environment and that healthy employees are by nature happier and more productive employees.
Quickline Couriers Limited are committed to continuous improvement to promote and maintain a high level of focus on health and safety from staff at all levels. Training, information and instruction will be provided to assist in creating a safe environment with safe equipment and competent employees.
