Commercial and industrial construction plays a large role in Australia’s economic activity, including the employment of a significant percentage of the nation’s workforce.
However, building sites present hazards that, if not dealt with correctly, can create significant risks. Therefore, the construction industry requires a fully trained and informed workforce that can go about their work in an efficient and safe manner.
Cell-media produces customised, detailed, yet easy to understand training programs that can efficiently and effectively communicate HSE learning to your employees.
In the past, Cell-media has produced programs that help inform staff about:
- general site safety
- correct use of permits
- site access
- working in confined spaces and at heights
- obtaining task-specific training, qualifications and tickets
- role-based training
- fatigue awareness
- tagging and isolations
- environmental awareness
- incident response.
Brookfield Multiplex is a leading global contractor. The company builds, engineers, maintains and operates property and infrastructure assets in Australia, the Middle East, South-East Asia, Europe and Canada.
With the help of Cell-media, Brookfield Multiplex was able to create a one-stop general site induction for general use across 30 of its sites. The induction was structured to be able to provide easy-to-update, site-specific information for each project, including safety team contact information, site maps, hours of work and much more.
Cell-media was also able to easily update the company’s induction interface when Brookfield and Multiplex merged in June 2007, with minimal disruption to their Induction process.
Having been in continual operation for over 90 years, Hansen Yuncken is one of Australia's leading privately owned construction companies. Today, Hansen Yuncken has an annual turnover exceeding $1 billion.
Similar to Brookfield Multiplex’s general site inductions, Hansen Yuncken and Cell-media combined to create over 12 different site-specific safety inductions, such as for the Bendigo Marketplace, Cairns Airport and Orange Hospital.
The online training allows contractors to remotely complete their inductions before coming to site, thereby saving time by allowing Hansen Yuncken to easily record which contractors have successfully been inducted prior to arriving at site.
Leighton Contractors is one of Australia’s best known and diverse construction companies. The company employs more than 14,000 people to provide services to the nation’s infrastructure, mining, telecommunications, civil construction, industrial and energy sectors.
In conjunction with Broad Construction Services, Leighton Contractors was awarded the contract to work on the Perth’s significant Elizabeth Quay project. Because of the large amount of personnel subcontracted to work on the project, Cell-media was employed to create an online training portal that allowed for easy tracking of users completing the project’s multiple site inductions.
In consultation with local Aboriginal groups, Leighton Broad and Cell-media also created a Cultural Awareness Training course with the aim of providing contractors with information on the cultural and environmental heritage aspects of the Elizabeth Quay project.
Richard Crookes Constructions is a private, family-owned construction company that has been building for both government and private clients since 1976. The company delivers projects up to and in excess of $200 million across all building sectors, primarily focused in NSW and the ACT.
For Richard Crookes Constructions, Cell-media developed a modular base induction that was able to be quickly and efficiently modified for different sites or projects, such as for a housing induction and the 'Building the Education Revolution’ (BER) scheme.
This project was also one of the first inductions by Cell-media to include a tracking database that allowed Richard Crookes Constructions to control users and track their competency in a certain induction. This was invaluable for providing site access to inducted contractors only on dangerous construction sites.
Boral is Australia's largest building and construction materials supplier, with operations in all states and territories. The company supplies concrete, quarry products, asphalt, cement, bricks, plasterboard, roof tiles, timber, windows and masonry.
In conjunction with Boral, Cell-media developed three separate packages for the company, for human resources , equal employment opportunity training and a general OHS induction. All were placed on Boral's in-house Learning Management System.
Because of limited site access for photography and video, due to the nature of Boral's business, Cell-media created these inductions (using a large variety of motion graphics, 2D animation and 3D graphics) to successfully convey the desired message.
