Supporting safety in bulk handling

The 2019 Australian Bulk Handling Rewards is the only program specifically designed to showcase outstanding achievements and success across the bulk handling sector.

Supported by Komatsu, SEW Eurodrive and Schenck Process, the awards are an opportunity to acknowledge some of the organisations and individuals who have gone above and beyond in their specific area of expertise.

Neil Jackson, General Manager of Crushing and Conveying at Komatsu, said the awards also provide an excellent opportunity for companies to network and showcase what they are doing within the industry.

“We’ve attended the Australian Bulk Handling Awards previously and have always found them to be great value,” he said.

“They allow my team to connect with industry leaders face to face, which lets us understand what other businesses are doing within the industry as well helping us showcase some of our own innovations and products.”

“Safety is one of the five key pillars that drives our approach to business here at Komatsu, which is why we have decided to sponsor the Best Practice in Safety Award,” Jackson said.
