Bula vinaka! It’s never a dull day in the CAKE world of training!! Earlier this month, Training Manager Daniel had the privilege of extending the training area abroad all the way to Fiji. It was a pleasure to offer these unique skills to such a humble and appreciative group of people. Amidst the heat and humidity we spent a solid few days honing and fine tuning rescue techniques and scenarios for the towers team along with some participants from EFL, in total there were 30 participants to put through the paces, all of which done amazingly well and were all so receptive to the opportunity.

Here at Cake we are always thinking about ways to help our staff with their Health and Wellbeing. Thanks to Thida Thai Massage, our Auckland team will be able to get fortnightly massages which will help with many things such as limiting stress, promoting better sleep, easing anxiety and promoting better circulation. This will help our staff in work and at home.
Our Training Manager Daniel Aston has completed and qualified as a fit tester, the Commit2Fit programme through the New Zealand Occupational Hygiene Society – NZOHS. The New Zealand Occupational Hygiene Society is a network of occupational hygiene professionals who further the practice, professionalism and recognition of the industry in New Zealand. This further increases our in-house training capablities, as Daniel has also recentlyreceived his certificate from the Institue of Corrosion for my ICorr Coating Inspector (Inc. Marine & Offshore) Level 2. ICorr level 2 inspectors are qualified to perform and direct inspections or testing operations according to established and recognized procedures He has also recently qualified as a Medic and completed the NZOHS (New Zealand Occupational Hygiene and Safety) course which enables him to now perform in-house first aid training and Face Fit testing. We are always trying to find ways to improve our workplace learning.
Cake Towers division has recently welcomed several new recruits to our Auckland towers team, our latest project involves working on some much larger style towers, fortunately the extra hands and sunshine means we are making good progress with the painting works.
CAKE Fiji is back in business at long last. After having to pull out due to Covid-19 we can finally restart operations in Fiji working for EFL on their transmission network. We have a contract to finish and then begin a new one by setting up a camp right up on top of the island in a remote area. From here we can work back down the island and finish off the remaining towers for the western district. Plenty of challenges ahead for our Kiwi and Local team.
Our Auckland towers team pulled together two crews to make one big “super crew” on a large tower which had access and time constraints. With the blasting underway, this picture shows a good example of a site setup with many hands in action.
