COVID-19 Update re South East Queensland

All,

Over the last four days there have been 12 confirmed cases of COVID19 in Queensland which has prompted the Government to reintroduce some restrictions on social gatherings.

The cases have included those linked to the Youth Detention Centre at Wacol where the Rohan Barry Team has an active construction project completely separate from but adjacent to the facility. While none of the Hutchies’ people working on the Wacol project have been identified as a ‘close contact’ the team made the responsible decision to get tested over the weekend and will not be attending site until they receive a negative test result – most of which were returned last night and confirmed as negative for COVID19.

Queensland Health has been completing contact tracing of all of the positive cases and has been releasing details of venues that people who have been diagnosed with COVID19 attended while infectious. I have included the current list below and the link here: https://www.qld.gov.au/health/conditions/health-alerts/coronavirus-covid-19/current-status/contact-tracing

There are a couple of people from the Brisbane office who were at one of the venues at the relevant date and time and they made the appropriate and responsible decision to be tested last night. They will be working from home until they receive a negative result.

Please take the time to review the list below and if you have been at one of the venues at the time identified make arrangements to be tested and work from home until you receive a negative result.

These cases in South East Queensland over the last few days have highlighted the need to remain vigilant with all of those social distancing and hygiene practices that will reduce the chance of spreading the virus.

Consistent with this approach and out of an abundance of caution we have made arrangements to further increase the cleaning regime in the Toowong office, which you will notice from today.

Additionally, while this cluster of cases is bought under control, from this morning we are again reducing numbers at the Toowong office and are promoting working from home for those that are practically able to so.

During this critical period, please reinforce social distancing and hygiene measures on all sites and in all offices so we are able to do our part in preventing the spread of the virus and in turn keeping people safe and sites operating.

Thanks,

Ben

1 July / Notice

Starting 1 July 2024, Victoria is introducing a new operator licence for non-slewing telehandlers (capacity of more than 3 tonnes).

Previously, only a CN licence was required for mobile cranes.

There is now special training for safely operating non-slewing telehandlers with different tools attached.

If you already hold a crane licence (CN / C2 / C6 / C1 / C0), you don’t need to do anything unless you want to learn more about telehandler operation.

Effective 1 July 2024

If you don't currently hold one of these licences, and need to operate a non-slewing telehandler over 3 tonnes, from 1 July you must:

  • Complete and pass the non-slewing telehandlers training by an authorised registered training provider (Course 11249NAT)
  • Apply for the new licence
  • Provide a copy of the licence to Hutchies

The new licence is only for operating non-slewing telehandlers, not a non-slewing mobile crane or slewing telehandler.

To operate non-slewing telehandlers under 3 tonnes, there are no changes. Operators must still be trained in either THA Gold Card or RIIHAN309F.

28 June / New

Hutchies has a new facilities management system to under pilot for our Toowong office.

The myBuildings tool aims to streamline work requests, quotes, communication, and invoicing for our on site contractors. 

Our plan is to extend the implementation of this system to our office at 31 Staple Street, Seventeen Mile Rocks.

Reporting building maintenance

If you're in Toowong, and have an item to report, please send all maintenance requests to:

brisbane.reception@hutchinsonbuilders.com.au

Contractors on site

All contractors performing works internally and externally at Hutchies' Toowong office (which includes ADG Engineers' buildings) must complete our induction process and sign in using the QR code located at reception.

More information

If you have any questions about the new system, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Sarah Di Lorenzo in Hutchies' Property Team. 

Thank you in advance as we transition to this more efficient way of managing building maintenance.
