zero-harmSafety is our number one priority at GMK Logistics

Every day, safety issues are discussed and reviewed at every GMK site as part of our total commitment to the safety of our team, our suppliers, our customers and the wider community.

Through our ZERO HARM safety program, we are working hard to achieve:

  • Zero medically treated injuries (MTIs)
  • Zero lost time injuries (LTIs)
  • Zero motor vehicle incidents
  • Zero unsafe practices.

Whilst we have a long history of great customer service, that doesn’t mean we bend the rules or operate in an unsafe manner to get the job done. Everyone at GMK is expected to perform their job in a safe and efficient manner, taking responsibility for their own safety and the safety of their colleagues.

Whilst we have a comprehensive suite of safety procedures we like to regularly reinforce the following minimum requirements:

  • Observe all road rules when driving, under no circumstances are drivers permitted to break speed limits or drive dangerously to meet a deadline
  • Wear your seatbelt and operate your forklift or vehicle carefully and at a safe speed
  • Use your mobile phones or other devices in designated areas only, never use them when operating machinery
  • Always wear a hi-vis jacket and safety glasses and follow the lines in the depot

GMK reinforces the ZERO HARM safety message by sending it to all team members every day, because when it comes to safety even one injury is one too many.
