Quotes from ARA CEO, Danny Broad:
“Since implementing the tool, zero injuries have been recorded for handling knuckles across Aurizon’s eight east coast maintenance depots. All workers, regardless of strength can now safely participate in performing the task. Congratulations Prescribe Australia, Aurizon and JPC.” said Danny Broad, Chief Executive Officer, Australasian Railway Association.
“Prescribe worked with Aurizon’s wagon and locomotive maintainers and JPC engineering to provide a comprehensive solution that would manage the inherent workplace risk and well as personal injury risk.”
