24-Hour Vehicle Tracking and Surveillance
At P&L Machine Moving and Rigging, we take the safety of our clients’ goods and machines very seriously. That’s why all of our vehicles are fitted with a GPS tracking device and 24-hour tracking and monitoring throughout Southern Africa. This technology allows us to keep tabs on the location of our vehicles and provides increased safety and solid piece of mind to our clients.
Furthermore, it allows us to better respond to any unexpected emergency situations that may arise. We are committed to providing the safest and most reliable transportation services in the region and across border.
The planning department at P&L is responsible for managing all aspects of the project, from risk assessments and methodology to lifting diagrams and route surveys. Our goal is to ensure that all abnormal loads have the necessary permits and qualified escorts. We also make use of safe lifting methodology software to accurately calculate lifting parameters.
Our team is composed of experienced and knowledgeable professionals who are able to develop customised solutions for each project. We strive to provide our customers with efficient solutions that are tailored to their individual needs. Our team is also available to provide guidance and advice on how to best manage any project safely and efficiently.
Health and Safety
Our SHEQ policy is designed to ensure compliance with relevant legislation and our own standards of safety, health, environment and quality. We strive to ensure that not only employees, but all people are safe, our environment is protected, and that our services meet the highest standards. Our commitment to health and safety is an integral part of our culture and values, and one that we take very seriously.
With knowledge and accountability of safety issues, employees know what to do to prevent accidents, or in the event of an unforeseeable incident, know how to react. All of our staff are required to complete training that covers the safety measures and protocols that are required to be followed in the workplace.
