Training for Downer NZ - Tailored to a 'T'

Last year, FETS provided Downer NZ with confined space training for Work Type Competency (WTC) compliance for their telecommunications work.

This programme needed to be delivered across 11 worksites from Auckland to Invercargill. That's 61 courses for 689 technicians, and registering 2,067 unit standards with NZQA. Therefore, a prompt start was required!

Trevor's Top Tip

With Spring in full swing and beautiful sunny days in our midst, you'll be wanting to get outdoors more and more. So here are some safety tips to keep in mind, whether your working around the house, out in the garden or having a picnic with the family:
  1. If you're mowing the lawns or operating other heavy machinery, remember to wear your earmuffs to protect your hearing.  
  2.  Spring is a great time of year to check all your outdoor equipment is working correctly safety e.g. those wicker chairs might be a bit mouldy!
  3. When gardening or chopping wood, wear gloves to protect from skin irritations, cuts, and contaminants.
  4. Use insect repellent containing DEET.
  5. Follow instructions and warning labels on chemical bottles - always wear protective clothing when using chemicals.
  6. Reduce the risk of sunburn and skin cancer by wearing long sleeves, a wide-brimmed hat, and sunglasses. Use sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher.
  7. When working in hot weather drink plenty of liquids, but not those that contain alcohol or large amounts of sugar, as they can cause you to lose body fluid.
  8. Pay attention to signs of heat-related illness, including high body temperature, headache, dizziness, rapid pulse, nausea, or confusion. 


Our team will do what it takes to make sure you are compliant for your industry so email or give us a call today on 0800 338 748.
