Western Australian transport carrier, KTrans has received an award for its state-of-the art facility in Kenwick.
KTrans Directors Wade Jolly and Sam Keene, were presented with the WorkSafe PLATINUM Certificate of Achievement last week in recognition of achieving the highest standards in the outstanding management of safety and health in the workplace.
A company’s contribution to the reduction of work-related injury and disease in Western Australia is also factored into the decision.
The certificate was presented by Ian Munns, Deputy Director General, Safety Regulation, Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety.
Munns declared that it was in exceptional circumstances that a company reached Platinum Achievement, without first achieving Silver and Gold.
In accepting the award, Wade Jolly, Trans Managing Director, thanked Munns and the KTrans team.
“The standards companies must have to receive achievements such as this are very high, and as an indication of this there have been just 11 companies in WA across all industries to be awarded this, with KTrans being the only transport and logistics company to achieve this wholly across their business in 2021,” he said.
“As a team we achieved this certification by consistently aligning to the KTrans five culture pillars of Discipline, Accountability, Loyalty, Honesty and Pride,” said Jolly.
Jolly said the approach had helped enable the achievement.
“This doesn’t happen by only a portion of our team taking safety seriously, it takes every single one of us day in and day out determined to see – not just ourselves – but our team mates go home safely to their families,” he said.
