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

Huge congratulations to Mark Andrews who is the winner of our Safety Employee of the Quarter award!
Mark is a longstanding member of our Traffic Management team, whose attitude towards work is consistently outstanding; he always goes above and beyond to ensure safety onsite.
Mark’s recent work on the project at Bringelly for BMD Constructions has been exceptional in terms of his leadership and teamwork skills. BMD’s feedback has been fantastic – Head Engineers, Superintendents and fellow Traffic Controllers have commended him on his work. His quick thinking and level-headed approach to the unexpected has been crucial when dealing with live traffic on a high-profile job.

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.

Dementia Australia Presentation

Quickway’s Kathy Diskin (Traffic Control Manager) and Jamie-lee Middlebrook (Training and Development Coordinator) were presented with Dementia Australia’s Certificate of Appreciation today for the funds raised by Quickway at City2Surf 2018.

Safety Employee of the Quarter

Our Safety Employee of the Quarter award goes to Abraham Al Haydari from our Traffic Management division, pictured here with Kathy Diskin, Traffic Control Manager.
Abraham, who is currently employed on our Ausgrid Cable Laying Project Works – Sydney Southern Region contract, has gained invaluable experience in his time with Quickway, and has attained his current position as a Supervisor as a result.

FSC Accreditation

Quickway are pleased to announce that, having met the requirements of the Australian Government Building and Construction WHS Accreditation Scheme, we have been awarded accreditation from the Office of the Federal Safety Commissioner.

Quickway are one of a small number of companies nationwide who have obtained this accreditation, and one of a select few within our specific area of service to do so. This achievement provides Quickway with the opportunity to tender for and work directly as the head contractor on projects that are funded by the Australian Government, both state and national. Only head contractors who are accredited under the Scheme can enter into contracts of a value greater than $4M.

This accreditation enables the company to move into the next level of contracting, and we look forward to partnering with various Australian Government agencies and the continuing growth and success of our business as a result. This is one of the many recent examples of our great teamwork involving staff from various levels within our organisation working together, making large challenges achievable.

ASPIRE City2Surf Presentation

Kathy Diskin, Quickway’s Traffic Control Manager, received a certificate of appreciation from ASPIRE Community Hub in Chester Hill for fundraising efforts undertaken by Quickway at this year’s City2Surf which took place in Sydney in August.

ASPIRE is a University of New South Wales initiative which has been operating since 2007 with the aim of targeting schools that traditionally have low numbers of students who pursue higher education – with a view to reversing this trend.

Quickway would again like to take the opportunity to thank all our sponsors for their generous donations and our team members who undertook the arduous task of running City2Surf.
