Protranz Earthmoving Limited has been involved in the transportation of asbestos (Class 9 Dangerous Goods) for many years, priding ourselves on setting the highest safety standards. We comply fully with the Land Transport Act and the Health and Safety in Employment (Asbestos) Regulations 1998. We have designed and built specialist asbestos carrying bins to meet these regulations, and we believe we are the industry leaders in all facets of the health and safety aspects surrounding the transportation of asbestos.

Our main aim is to minimise our clients’ legal exposure within the NZTA Chain of Responsibility (see overleaf) and to the hazards of the transportation of asbestos.
