KiwiRail – ‘more value and depth at the same price’

We've worked with the Interislander ferries for many years and late last year, in preparation for their busy summer season, they required extensive induction training. We brought their extra Cabin Attendant staff up to speed with courses in:

  • Fire Prevention & Fire fighting
  • Personal Safety and Social Responsibility
  • Personal Survival Techniques
  • Crowd Management
  • First Aid

Parent company, KiwiRail, called on us to help the new staff sail through their STCWs (Standards of Training and Certification of Watchkeepers) and give their new staff the confidence to see them through their busiest time of the year.

The solution

Trevor's Top Tip

Being prepared for an emergency is something you need to keep on top of and now that everyone is back from holiday this is a great time to check your supplies.

Are you prepared?

  • Do you have enough food for everyone in your building? Remember to check those expiry dates!
  • Brief staff on your emergency plan and remind them of your meeting point in the event of an evacuation.
  • Check your Go Bags and civil defence kits to see if everything is still in working order. It’s also a good idea to keep a grab bag under your desk and in your car.
  • Keeping your supplies up to date is an ongoing process so pop a reminder in your phone or on your calendar to check them again in 6 months. We’ll also send you a friendly reminder in future newsletters.
  • Ensure you have a fresh supply of water. You will need at least 20 litres for each person in your building.
At our Wellington Headquarters, we keep ten 10L bottles filled with water and refill them at the Lower Hutt Artesian Water fountain, outside the the Dowse Art Museum. You can check with your regional council to see where you can easily fill your water containers. 

Fun fact: Dunedin has one next to the Speight's Brewery.
