Not one, not two, but three CMS Engineering displaying their new liveries. Flish flash!
We've had a few larger signs make their way out of the workshops recently. This monster digital sign for Daktronics was on its way to site but first we had to manoeuvre it out of the yard using a franna crane, and onto the hiab for its onward journey.
Our team use a pre-start meeting to discuss all elements of the move in advance of works. The whole process was well orchestrated by Andrew and the franna operator. They say that you learn something new every day, and this day was no different. On a break I asked the franna operator why the crane was so named - well FRANNA stands for: “Francis and Anna” the names of the company founder and his daughter. Franna is a manufacturer of Pick & Carry cranes with a lifting capacity from 10 to 25 tonnes.
All in all another great manoeuvre by our team of sign superstars.
This Friday 27th April our Toolbox meeting will be focusing on the 'World Day for Safety and Health at Work and Workers’ Memorial Day.
The actual World Day is on the Saturday, but we are bringing things forward 24 hours to use our Toolbox talk to focus on promoting safety and health in our workplace - something that we practice daily, hourly and by the minute but as they say, enough is never enough!
Our safety slogan is 'Think SMART, before you START’. We use a combination of Take 5's, SOP (Safe Operating Procedures) and SWMS/JSA's combine to ensure that our works are well thought through and risks are considered every step of the way.
The Toolbox meeting will particularly feature 'Young workers' as they have been found to have an increased risk of workplace injury due to their lack of experience, maturity and awareness of OHS responsibilities. Jack, our youngest worker, attended this week's Safety Reps meeting as an integral part of our efforts to involve both the senior/experienced team members, and those who are just starting out in their post-apprentice sign journey.
At the Toolbox we will also honour those who have died from work-related injury or illness.
More photos of our Toolbox event to follow next week.
More great quality signage was evident in the workshop last week in preparation for the latest unveiling in parks and reserves around the City of Stirling.
Over the last few years we have made a large number of these signs and fine tuned the production methodology down to a fine art!
This signage incorporates many skills and techniques for our tradesmen - metal fabrication, painting, routing, graphics and formwork/concreting. To save time on site these signs are pre-cast in the factory - this ensures a quick and safe installation in areas of high general public use.
Our project managers determine the most time efficient production methodologies, so that once the signage has been designed and approved, our manufacturing team can do a sterling job.
