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!

 

NorthConnex Steel Fixing

At Quickway we’re proud of our diverse and safety conscious steel fixing crew who have earned a stellar reputation on NorthConnex.

LLBJV superintendent Mark Ingram said: “The crew are extremely hardworking and dedicated to the work that they do. It has been very beneficial having them as part of the team, as they perform a high risk job to a high standard.”

TeamSafety. Standards.

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.

NRT Employee Excellence Award

Today, Quickway’s Bayagrun Nyamsuren received the NRT Employee Excellence Award for his contribution to the Norwest Station as part of the Sydney Metro Northwest project through personal commitment and work ethic.

Northwest Rapid Transit (NRT) combines the experience of the world’s number one commercial rapid transit operator with Australia’s most experienced railway contractor. Their primary goals are to ensure the safety of workers and the public and to minimise impact on the community and the local environment during construction. This aligns with the Quickway values and ethos, which is reflected in Bayagrun’s achievement.

At Quickway we believe in rewarding and recognising the achievements of our people and teams, who are at the heart of all we do. Huge congratulations to Bayagrun!

The Blockinator at R U OK? Day

Members of Quickway’s M5 WestConnex team pictured here with Keith Schleigel AKA ‘The Blockinator’, who was visiting the worksite at St. Peters today promoting R U OK? Day in conjunction with Mates In Construction.

Mates in Construction is an industry-led approach to preventing and reducing the high rates of suicide within the construction industry – we lose a construction worker every second day to suicide.

R U OK? Day is about encouraging people to ask the question, and offering support to those in your life who may be struggling – so check in with your family, friends or workmates today.

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.
