During the skills competition, the practical operations assessment for bridge cranes and forklifts were specially designed according to the company’s actual production conditions and in strict accordance with the operating requirements of bridge cranes and forklifts. These items have now reached an intermediate or higher level within the industry. The forklift operation competition consisted of four items: “carrying cargo into and out of the warehouse, passing intelligently through an S turn, hanging red lanterns, and passing steadily over speed bumps”. The bridge crane operation competition consisted of three items: “passing along an S stakes with a load, carrying workpieces across a frame, and fixed-point dropping off of cargo”. During the competition, all participants strictly observed the rules and operated their equipment carefully, calmly and assuredly. This enabled them to showcase their stable and superior skills of NGC production line workers and the corporate spirit of “Climb up the summit step by step, Strive for perfection bit by bit”. After a period of fierce competition, six participants, including Tan Yonggen from the second factory of Nanjing High Speed Gear Manufacturing Co., Ltd., took the top six places in the forklift skills competition. Another six participants, including Zhou Qian from the second factory of Nanjing High Accurate Marine Equipment Co., Ltd., took the top six places in the bridge crane skills competition.

The skills competition has always adhered to the principles of “fairness, openness and equality” and has received help from the Nanjing Quality and Technology Supervision Administration at the technology level, while the theory and practical operation test questions have all been reviewed by experts. The competition has received great support from the company. The two competition venues for forklifts and bridge cranes were organized elaborately in a spirit of unity and collaboration, ensuring the success of the competitions. By means of large-scale skill competitions such as this one, the Group hopes to further create a good atmosphere for respecting knowledge, skills and labor among staff and employees, activating and arousing their enthusiasm for their work. This will motivate employees to stick to their posts and do their jobs well, so that the best technicians can become examples of strength for everyone to admire, respect and learn from.
