The team, who have been working on the Energy Queensland Limited network have recently undertaken training and authorisation to perform a Multi Conductor Crane Lift via Glove and Barrier Methods. Although this procedure is a common practice throughout other states and internally for Energy Queensland staff, this is the first time in Queensland an electrical contractor has been trained and authorised to undertake this type of activity.
This is a massive win for our Queensland team, as this procedure has introduced additional practices that can improve overall safety and outcomes for our workers.
With the great success in completing this training with our first group, we now have plans to roll this training out to all Queensland Glove and Barrier Teams in the coming months.
A big thankyou to Josh Forrest (QLD Supervisor) and Rick Jones (Benchmark Power – Trainer and Assessor) for providing an outcome for this Training and Authorisation.
