Health, Safety, Security & Environment

Bertling's health and safety mantra is 'Forward Safely'

Bertling's health, safety, security and environmental policies have been framed by in-house, experienced, qualified specialists to ensure that movement of clients' goods is managed without damage to the environment; without hazard to personnel and without risk to the cargo.


Bertling's HSSE targets are...

  • zero major incidents
  • to fulfil all relevant national and international legislative requirements
  • not to damage and, where possible, to improve the environment
  • to encourage the development of a safety culture amongst the personnel and contractors
  • safety of goods in transit by compliance with the C-TPAT and AEO programmes
  • to provide training to our personnel and, where appropriate, our contractors.
