2016 State Work Health and Safety Award for the South Australian Glass and Glazing Association

We are the proud recipients of 2016 Work Health & Safety Award for SA Glass & Glazing Assocition

This award was given to Adelaide Glass Guys by South Australian Glass and Glazing Association (AGGA) for addressing the problems of lifting and carrying glass for the installation of pool fencing and balustrading. Carrying pieces of glass up to 80kg caused significant strain on workers’ back, knees and arms, with some jobs requiring up to 15 pieces of glass to be moved up to 60 metres. The solution was an A-Frame trolley which could access narrow spaces, and sourcing appropriate back braces to reduce strain when lifting sheets on and off the trolley.
