Putting health and safety first

AD Fuels operate to the highest standards of safety across all our operations, from the safety of our drivers and vehicles to all our on-site procedures.

We have appointed an external Health & Safety advisor as a critical friend to ensure all our policies comply with current legislation and that we meet all necessary standards for COMAH regulations (Control of Major Accident Hazards).

We are partnered with TruTac, a robust tachograph software program designed to ensure all drivers and staff members are effectively managed in terms of drivers’ hours and working times. TruTac’s vehicle maintenance programme, Tru-Fleet also ensures all statutory inspections and regulatory compliance is adhered with, continued emphasis on DVSA Earned Recognition.

As well as compliance, AD Fuels have a legal responsibility to look after the welfare of anyone associated with our transport operation, which operates from 109 Broadwater St East, Worthing, West Sussex, BN14 9AW and Wicks Farm, Ford Lane Ford, West Sussex BN180DF. This includes employees, contractors, visitors and local residents.

Our safety policy

The aim of this policy is to ensure that all who work at the AD Fuels site understand the processes and procedures introduced and operated to remove or minimise the risk of injury or death.

The operational procedures will be continually monitored, recorded and improved wherever possible to further reduce the risk of harm to individuals as required by the conditions set out by the Standard of BSI OHSAS 18001.

We take this responsibility very seriously, and as such, we will:

  • Hold monthly Health & Safety meetings
  • Inspect the site weekly for defects which may cause harm
  • Review and amend any Standard Operational Procedure (SOP) that has failed to deliver safe operational performance
  • Review all Standard Operational Procedures (SOPs) from time-to-time to see if the safety aspect of the procedure can be improved
  • Ensure all personnel clearly understand processes and the inherent dangers associated with those processes where applicable
  • Ensure the correct Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Safety Equipment is available and worn at all times
  • Ensure that at least two members of the senior management team hold a recognised Health & Safety certificate at all times
  • Ensure that all employees receive adequate training on how to operate equipment and plant
  • Ensure that all visitors to the site receive induction training
  • Encourage all employees and contractors to report fault equipment of dangerous activity
  • Record ‘Near Miss’ situations
  • Review all incident, accidents and ‘Near Miss’ situations and seek to implement change as required.
