Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea 2019

Quickway held a BBQ this morning for our employees working on the M4-M5 Link in support of Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea.

All the funds raised have gone towards helping the Cancer Council achieve its mission of a cancer free future. Quickway did it our way this May for our Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea to help make a big difference to those impacted by cancer. With many of our lads on the M4/M5 site gearing up for work, Quickway threw a BBQ with every dollar raised going to Cancer Council to help to support those impacted by cancer. Every dollar raised through an Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea helps fund Cancer Council’s life-saving research, prevention, support programs, and information, with Cancer Council encouraging hosts to “Do it your way this May”

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.

Variety the Children’s Charity

Quickway proudly supports Variety – the Children’s Charity that helps children who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs.
