The Big Meet

Quickway exhibited our undergraduate and graduate programs at The Big Meet. The event was held at the International Convention Centre Sydney, Darling Harbour with over 100 exhibitors and hundreds of undergraduates and recent graduates from all universities in the Sydney metropolitan region.

Our Senior Project Managers Jacobus Botha (Utilities Infrastructure) and Ian Wright (Transport Infrastructure) were there to answer any questions and do some networking with some potential future additions to our team!

 

Safety Employee of the Quarter

Congratulations to Alex Cooper, who was presented with the Safety Employee of the Quarter award today at our Safety Awareness Forum for his handling of a challenging situation onsite.
A fellow worker started suffering sudden chest pains at work and collapsed. Thanks to Alex’s quick thinking and prompt action, the worker was taken to hospital and made a full recovery.
Alex checked his breathing and talked his colleague through the episode.
His commitment to the wellbeing of his co-workers demonstrates his dedication to site safety in an unpredictable work environment.

Safety Awareness Forum

Quickway marked the start of National Safe Work Month today with our very first Safety Awareness Forum at the ANZ Stadium.
We had presentations from members of our own team as well as key guest speakers – Paul Monaro discussed prevention and management of soft-tissue injury, Simonette Vaja spoke on mental health matters, and Dallas Adams blew us all away with his raw and tragic personal account on ‘Why Safety Matters’. The impact that an accident in the workplace can have is unimaginable and Dallas uses his own loss to reinforce the important message that : ‘A moment is all it takes’.

R U OK? Day

Quickway are acknowledging ‘R U OK Day’ with toolbox talks across all sites today and have put the ‘R U OK?’ message on all computers.
We encourage people to start a dialogue with anyone you think is struggling. Our vision is a world where we are all connected and protected from suicide.
‘Every Day is R U OK? Day’.
Sometimes conversations are too big for friends, family or colleagues, and this is where professional support is needed. Don’t hesitate to use our free Employee Assistance Programme for help when needed.

Safety Employee of the Quarter

This quarters Safety Employee award goes to Cathal Caldwell of our Electrical division, for the second time in a year.

Cathal was commended by a TfNSW representative for using his initiative onsite by extending the locations of his traffic controllers past the designated worksite, thus preventing a bottle neck between work zones. 
This shows forward thinking, meticulous attention to detail, and consideration for the safety of his co-workers and the community. His strong focus on safety, and ability to use initiative is testament to his dedication to site safety in a changing work environment.

Congratulations to Cathal.
