What does road safety mean to Hanson?

Hanson believes that sustainable development is a fundamental challenge in our world and in our business today. One key part of this challenge is the health and safety of those who work for us and live in the communities in which we operate. While internationally each of our operations has taken action individually on this issue, we recognize that our safety performance is not yet at a level we can accept.

Consequently, we are endorsing an initiative aimed at improving the safety of our drivers and contractors, groups in which we have seen far too many accidents and injuries. This initiative will be actively promoted within each of our operations. We will publicly report on our progress, and will share safety lessons learned among our companies to help raise safety awareness and performance across our industry.

Locally Hanson undertakes to share with Australian businesses, and the general community, safety lessons learned by our local operations.

Hanson has been part of the NRSPP Steering Committee since inception and only recently stepped down. Steve Williams, on behalf of Hanson, has been a reliable and regular contributor to Hanson.
