Milos addresses safety standards at Chinese trussing seminar
CHINA: Trussing manufacturer Milos recently staged a two-day product seminar and safety awareness workshop at its facility in Guangzhou, China, which was reported to be well attended by companies and individuals from Hong Kong, Macau, Thailand and Indonesia as well as from mainland China.
The workshop section was led by Milos China’s chief engineer Marek Zubor, sales manager Michal Zykan and Stephen Huang, director of Milos Guangzhou, and attracted a selection of entertainment industry professionals including riggers, project supervisors, rental companies and designers.
The workshop’s primary objective was to illustrate the quality and safety aspects integral to the company’s range of trussing, roofing and staging products, and began with a full factory tour of the Guangzhou plant.
This was followed by a regional and global company overview and profile and a preview of future business and development strategies. A range of the brand’s products were then examined in depth, with particular focus on the T12 modular display system and X-Truss range, which were both introduced into China this year.
Basic ‘production’ scenarios such as mother grids and the building of staging/roofing systems using Milos’ equipment, together with a comprehensive session on related safety issues were also outlined on day one.
Meanwhile, the safety session was led by Michal Zykan and Marek Zubor, who began by outlining the potential hazards of working with temporary trussing systems outdoors, and then discussed the environmental conditions that can impact projects. This included safety rules at work, specifying the correct equipment for a particular situation, using it appropriately, as well as accident prevention and personal safety protection. This was followed by an in depth Q&A session.
At the end of the second day, all guests were presented with a certificate of attendance, and Milos reports that it gathered ‘plenty of positive feedback’ about the experience.
‘Milos is currently experiencing a healthy growth of its business in South East Asia and the Indian subcontinent, which is seeing a growing demand for quality, and has also recently spearheaded new business in Korea and Australia,’ commented a company spokesperson.
