Safety,Health,Environment&Quality.

On-going, dedicated adherence to Safety, Health, Environment, and Quality (SHEQ) Management is one of the ways that Strauss Logistics lives the company’s values.

Our SHEQ policy evolves with industry experience and trends, regulatory changes, and client requirements. It is far-reaching, including health and safety, environmental management, and service standards.

We’re proud to say that it unifies our company under over-arching objectives by integrating all systems and processes into a single, comprehensive framework.

Strauss has implemented several measures to contain the spread of Covid-19 infection amongst our staff, and to support regulations in place to prevent cross-border spread.

This includes temperature screening of staff and all visitors to our depot, the placement of sanitising stations at all key points throughout our depot, and ongoing, mandatory testing of drivers who travel between Zambia, South Africa, DRC and Namibia. PCR testing is done on all drivers every trip and we have initiated vaccination programmes with our Medical Aid provider to achieve a target of 100% staff vaccination.
