Latest News / President's Report - June 2018

Welcome to all of our members and people who read News Flush.  Our office has been extremely busy recruiting new members and I welcome all of you to the NZ Plumbers, Drainlayers & Gasfitters Association.

I cannot believe we are half way through 2018!  It is going so fast and everyone seems to be very busy.

We have a stand at the upcoming Chester’s Trade Show on the 11th of July 5pm on-wards at the Trust Stadium,
65-67 Central Park Drive Henderson, and we would love to see you guys there on the night. Everyone who registers to come along gets a free long sleeved shirt upon entry. If you’re not a member, come along and check out our awesome membership benefits! Thank you to all of our associates and sponsors who help us to offer these great deals to our members.

It’s also time to register for the CPD Road Show again. Don’t forget to do this and don’t leave it to the last minute as you may have to do the on-line version. If you are studying for exams the tradesman exams are now delivered through an on-line system that became operational on the 1st of June. This means exams can now be sat throughout the year at multiple locations and results are available within 24hrs. For more information regarding this and how to book your exam go to http://www.pgdb.co.nz/trade/exams.html

Winter is a great time to up-skill workers and to take the time on days when you have been rained off a site to check all your safety equipment. With all the new work safe requirements it is a good time to make a list of the additional qualifications your staff may hold. These include First Aid courses, Site Safe, confined space, working at heights - all important qualifications required to help in your workplace. I suggest keeping a register of the employees who hold different certificates and if other staff require up-skilling booking them in when the weather is bad.


That’s it from me.

Happy reading!

 





Glen Burr
President
