HSEQ – UEA Trenchless Update

Posted 5 November 2015

As part of UEA Trenchless’ ongoing commitment to provide our client base with a superior product, we have undertaken a number of significant training courses for all drill operatives associated with horizontal directional drilling (HDD) and thrust boring. All drill operatives have completed the Certificate III in Drilling Operations and additionally our Supervisors have also completed the Certificate IV qualification. The certification was completed in conjunction with NSW TAFE.

The TAFE NSW assessor praised the professionalism and high standard of skill UEA have across our workforce and commented that UEA were a ‘benchmark for the trenchless industry’.

Recent training and safety initiatives also include:

  • A TAFE Western course for all employees on load restraint was completed (Cert in RIINHB201D)
  • All employees recently undertook a skin cancer screening as part of the company’s sun smart strategy
