Bibby Distribution has successfully cut its total accident rate by almost a third since launching its Road to Zero Safety, Health, Environment and Quality (SHEQ) strategy four years ago.
Since 2015, the 3PL has reduced total accidents by 30 per cent, RIDDORs (Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrence Regulations) by 60 per cent and overall lost time accidents (LTAs) by 37 per cent.
The company’s long-term strategy aims for zero harm, zero waste and zero environmental impact across the entirety of its operations, and all staff are encouraged to be accountable for safe working practices.
Andrew Mawson, Head of SHEQ at Bibby Distribution, says: “We’ve always had a reputation for safe working practices, and we’re keen to push that even further with our Road to Zero strategy. The results speak for themselves and we are grateful to all of our staff who are putting safety first across our business.”
Bibby Distribution’s success with driver safety can be attributed to targeted training using data derived from its full-fleet telematics systems, as well as the £1 million installation of in-cab cameras across its entire fleet.
The company also holds an annual, dedicated health and safety conference to share best practice across the business, where staff can suggest further initiatives.
Family-run Bibby Distribution’s success has been recognised with three Gold Awards from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) in the past two years for Fleet Safety and Occupational Safety. It was awarded a merit at the 2018 International Safety Awards and is also a member of the British Safety Council – this month (February) receiving a third consecutive Merit Award from the not-for-profit organisation.
