The company was presented with the much coveted award, sponsored by Michelin Tyres, at a glittering ceremony at the Ramada Hotel in Belfast.

This award was judged by Health & Safety Expert, Bill Manson of Podiem; Bill is a National Training Awards Judge, Chairman of the Judging Panel for the Excel Awards in Management & Leadership and he is a Recognition Panel Member for Investors in People.

Haldane Fisher has developed a strong health and safety ethos in all parts of their business. Their operations demand a high level of diligence both in their own premises and on site. They are operating in many different environments and sometimes locations that are not easily accessed or managed.

Their process is very comprehensive with full identification of risks, rigorous recording and monitoring of employee training, significant senior management awareness along with a full set of performance metrics which demonstrate the positive impact of excellent Health and Safety.

All drivers, for example, have received SAFED (safe and fuel efficient driving) training by the company’s own in-house trainers as well as forklift and crane training where appropriate. Workshops on forklift safety for all drivers (including warehouse and yard operatives) are also carried out regularly.

The annual Awards is organised by the Hillsborough based publishers of Export & Freight magazine, 4Square Media, and is now widely regarded as the premier event in the Irish Transport & Logistics calendar, attracting entries, support and sponsorship from all the leading players in the industry.
