How we support our crane operators and the community
With a workforce of over 100 people, we know how important it is to provide support for our crane operators, doggers, drivers, mechanics – all our staff members and the wider community… especially during the challenging times we are currently facing.
We believe that sincere relationships and genuine care for colleagues are important in developing a positive company culture.
And here at Two Way Cranes, we pride ourselves on our authentic support networks.
Our partnerships with key organisations demonstrate our commitment to our people, their families and others in our community. Michael Biviano, WHS Manager, says:
“We appreciate that people have a lot on their plate these days, both at work and outside of work. We are a part of the community… that’s also our business.”
MATES in Construction
Two Way Cranes is an industry partner of MATES in Construction… in fact we are one of the only crane companies in NSW to work with them. MATES focuses on suicide prevention and mental health awareness and works specifically within our sector. We know that mental health is an important issue, not only for our workers but for everyone within the industry.
We believe we can all make a difference in the lives of those who might be struggling.
Taking the time to have regular, meaningful conversations about the highs and lows you experience can help improve overall wellbeing and create positive change in people’s lives.
The Children’s Hospital at Westmead provides critical health services for many families in need. The Paediatric Intensive Care Unit is close to our hearts, and through the proceeds of an internal staff initiative, Two Way Cranes donates directly to the hospital. Nichole Zammit explains:
“We introduced a program to encourage the teams to operate the cranes and equipment with more care and consideration, and the money we saved on not having to fix and repair the fleet would be donated to the hospital.
After the first year of the program, we were able to donate $10,000 and we took two of the crew members to present the cheque.”
Our dedication to safety continually decreases our accident claims. Any savings we make are offered as a donation and in 2021 we donated $15,000. This gives our team even more reason to focus on safety, because the more we save, the more we donate to the hospital.
Guide Dogs Australia
Guide Dogs Australia assists people who are blind or have low vision gain the freedom and independence to move safely and confidently around their communities and to fulfill their potential.
The team at Two Way Cranes sponsors all costs related to the development of a new Guide Dog puppy. ‘Tally’ is now in the midst of her important training and we know that she will be an exceptional addition to the program.
There’s no denying that Camp Quality services are something special. They are specifically designed to help children aged 0-13 cope with the daily ups and downs of dealing with cancer. They focus on creating positive memories, making friends and dreaming up glorious, grubby new adventures – and they know that laughter is the best medicine.
For us, there is a deep personal connection to the organisation.
We make monthly donations that go towards funding rooms for parents to stay with their children in hospital. We understand the challenges that families face, and we are dedicated to giving back to this great charity.
Racism. It Stops With Me
Racism. It Stops With Me is a national campaign that provides tools and resources to help people and organisations learn about racism and stand against it by acting for positive change. We all have a responsibility to stand against racism. We, at Two Way Cranes, say no to prejudice and discrimination – together, with a united voice. Michael concludes:
“Our involvement with these organisations adds to the culture of our company. It brings our team together.
We get a lot of good feedback from clients about how our team works and I think that being part of these initiatives enhances the way we work with each other.
We truly care about the people we work with every day… but we also care about the greater community around us.”
