Dawsons Group

April - June 2015

The Dawsons Group is a privately founded and owned Australian company with three workshops in Cairns, Charters Towers and Townsville, servicing Australia’s biggest companies with personnel, resources and equipment, as well as an RTO doing high risk work licenses, off-site shutdown inductions and general safety training.

Additionally with an in-house asbestos removal and demolitions division, plus remote area construction services for environmentally sensitive and difficult to reach locations, Dawsons works with Mining, Marine, Sugar, Government, Power, Oil and gas industries, as well as being a recognised Defence Supplier.

Meeting through the Australian Institute of Company Directors, the CEO of Dawsons tasked us documenting their internally built Labour Hire Management system so that it could be sold to clients nationally, whilst also documenting their many areas of expertise at their head office in Cairns, Queensland.

To do this we used a dual camera setup with screen capture software, allowing several members of staff to take us through how they used the system.

Additionally we conducted interviews with department heads, clients and staff, then produced 32 pieces of video content, including updating their https://www.youtube.com/DawsonsEngAus channel.
