Our team and trainees have been awesome this month (as per usual), so we wanted to take this blog post as an opportunity to share just a few of their achievements with you.
The SA team extend a warm welcome to its latest intake of trainees; Joshua Allen, Harry Jones and Stephen Ross (pictured).
The guys have embarked on their scaffolding journey with Caledonia and have spent the first few weeks familiarising themselves with the materials and processes and their allocated ‘buddies’ within the yard.
The Caledonia Scaffolding Traineeship consists of eight modules covering all aspects of scaffolding. The trainees will undertake courses including forklift operations, heights safety, dogging, scaffolding and more. We have now incorporated a new module to introduce them to our Design and Engineering capabilities, adding a further string to their bows.
We look forward to hearing more about their journey as they proceed out into the various work fronts we have across the state. Welcome aboard guys!

Reward & Recognition: Murrin Murrin (Minara Resources)
Our crew on site at Murrin Murrin have had some fantastic feedback and recognition from Rob Bruce (Minara Production Manager) and Phil Darby (Minara Maintenance Manager). The team executed some unplanned additional works at very short notice in order to help with an emergency job on site. The crew that volunteered carried out the work both in a safe manner and good time, in order to set the night-shift operators up to fix the problem. The lads were rewarded with a $100 voucher each from Minara and thanked for their efforts. The picture attached shows the crew with Phil Darby after receiving their vouchers. Many thanks and congratulations to James Dean, Colin Gibson, Elliot Gage, Tate Morgan, Peter Renwick, Sam Finch.
Reward & Recognition
(Pictured) Terry Williams, NZ Leading Hand at the site wide BBQ he organised at Naylor Love Rebel Sports site.
Over the last few months Terry has been mentoring another crew member who has shown a keen interest to develop himself and learn relevant skills involved with the L/H role. Terry invested a lot of time into passing on his knowledge and coaching and has turned a relatively new crew member into a very capable leading hand. All the while Terry was also learning the supervision role while his own supervisor was on leave. Terry has been an integral team member within Caledonia NZ and his relentless pursuit of excellence has been appreciated by all.
