Injury Free Qenos Generously Supports Sch,R

Qenos Pty Ltd have shown their generous support to the Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick by donating $20,000 in recognition of its employees at their Alkathene plant in Botany achieving one-year injury free. This support will assist in the purchase of a transport monitor for the resuscitation room in the Emergency Department at the Hospital - benefiting thousands of brave young patients that come through its doors each year.

Qenos is Australia's largest plastics and rubber producers with plants at Botany and Brookvale, Sydney, and Altona in Melbourne. As part of the Botany Industrial Park, Qenos, has four manufacturing plants which include Olefines, Alkatuff, Alkathene and Site Utililities. These plants together produce polythene, a product that everyone encounters daily as plastic bags, plastic film wrap, moulded plastic products and linings for milk cartons.

David Oram, Qenos Alkathene's Plant Manager says: 'On behalf of the employees who achieved this significant safety milestone, Qenos is delighted to recognise this achievement by enabling the hospital to purchase this much needed piece of equipment that will assist young
patients in an emergency situation'

'It is gratifying that the safety efforts of our people will be recognised through this worthwhile support.'

Professor Les White, Executive Director of the Sydney Children's Hospital says: 'The Hospital relies heavily on vital support from groups such as Qenos. They contribute not only to raising funds and awareness but also help to make a difference to the lives of many children treated at the Hospital.'
