PASS Exhibitor Safety Award

Agfest 2013 Exhibitor Safety Awards

7 judges scoured their section of Agfest visiting all private sites, (not government owned enterprises or departments), to find the product and site display to recommend to the group before the finalists were selected. The finalists were later visited by three “senior” judges who selected the winner and runner up in each section.

The three “senior” judges who are all keen supporters of PASS Inc were:

  • Mr Phillip Bourke, Manager – Safety Compliance & Risk Management at Searson Buck. (a labour hire company)
  • Mr Nathan Cox, a Skills Institute Natural Resources assessor and trainer
  • Mr Steven Boon, Safety Officer, TIA, UTAS Cradle Coast campus

 

  1. 1.     Private Exhibitor “Best Safety Display – Safety Feature / Focus”

Winner:         

Tasweld:         at Main Street site 14, for the presentation of all the safety products on sale at their store

 

Runner- up:

Webster Bearing & Engineering Supplies at 7th Avenue site 29, who previously won in 2010 and 2011

 

 

  1. 2.     Private Exhibitor “Best New Safety Product or Innovation”

Winner: 

Cow Lifter for a downer cow:

This new model, Steinfort Pelvic Lift MK2 by Steinfort Agvet  is an innovative improvement to the traditional hip lifter. It is safer for the operator and more humane for the cow. The lifting action positions the pelvic seat under the cow’s pelvis (but above the udder) creating less stress and discomfort for the cow
