February Recognition Award – Rod Lowe!

Two lifts were required, both critical and to be done under pressure due to contractors being ill prepared. Major lifts involve high risk and Rod designed lifting plans with works reviewed multiple times to ensure the lifts were executed flawlessly but most importantly, safely.

Rod showed great leadership, answering all queries and ensuring everyone involved was up-skilled and provided with information on past lifts and how to perform them safely.

Congratulations Rod on a job well done – Enjoy your $150 gift card!

A shout out to the other February nominees:

  • Roman Nguyen (twice)
  • Justin White
  • Louie Naldrett
  • Jody Friend
  • Luke Cinerari
  • David Plunkett
  • Matt Lyon
  • Aaron Grixti

Keep up the good work!
