Quickway Emergency Drill

Quickway safety in focus: We conducted an emergency drill on one of our major infrastructure projects, providing key training on the procedure to follow in the event of an injured worker requiring evacuation. The dummy was extracted from the deep works safely and securely, and the method was authorised by the client.

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’.

She is a great example to her colleagues, maintains excellent relationships with her crew, and trains new team members to the highest safety standards.
