Accessible Safety Training
Regular training in safety and building techniques go hand in hand at Empower Construction.
In September we held a training day at our warehouse and product testing centre to verify the competency of employees and subcontractors as the Person in Charge of operating the Hebel Hoist.
Under the guidance of our own qualified riggers and dogmen, and in consultation with engineers from CSR Hebel we reviewed the process for safe assembly of the Hebel Hoist for party wall installation and the predetermined lift process including safe panel handling.
The development of diagrammatic daily checklists ensure that instructions are easily understood by everyone in the team no matter their level of English. We now have 20 trained and competent Persons In Charge to service the growing demand for Hebel inter-tenancy and zero boundary wall installation using the cost effective Hebel Hoist.
