Ezy Profile is a lightweight, reusable profile system for achieving set-outs on building sites. This can include concrete slabs, foundations, drainage pools, fencing and retaining walls; essentially any building job requiring a stringline set-out. The system is also transported in a single carry bag for convenience.

Generations of tradespeople have constructed set-outs using pieces of wood, pegs, star stakes, nails, screws and other bits and pieces. For decades, builders have been taught to use this method at work and in training colleges despite its many drawbacks. It is inaccurate, time consuming, frustrating and wasteful, in terms of both materials and manpower. Mick Egan, a 58-year-old builder, then designed the Ezy Profile System after having enough of using the old profiling method. After many months of research, development and refining the manufacturing process, Ezy Profile finally came onto the market in 2013.

From 2013 to present, Ezy Profile has evolved with new products to become a complete, reusable profiling system for all types of building sites and usages. All products are designed to be used by a sole operator instead of the three or four that would usually be required using the old system, saving time and manpower both on the job and in the classroom. Additionally, the Ezy Profile places far less demand on time and financial resources for trainers. Unlike the past profiling systems, there is no requirement to regularly purchase and collect new materials due to the Ezy Profile’s durable design, while it also eliminates the need for additional equipment.

As all Ezy Profile systems are accompanied by video instructions, is it can easily be taught to students. The other major benefit to trainers is Ezy Profile’s compliance with workplace health and safety regulations. The kit is supplied with safety caps for the stakes and a 1 lb mallet in place of the 14 lb sledgehammer required when using old profiling methods.

Ezy Profile’s versatile and adjustable design ensures it can be used at any job site. It can be driven into hard surfaces such as concrete or asphalt and easily removed with no damage to the equipment. Ezy Profile Systems is being recognised for a New Product Innovation Award in the Australian Business Awards 2016.

The Australian Business Awards are the regional chapter of an integrated, hierarchical leadership program conducted on a national and international level. Eligible organisations from each region are invited to participate in the international chapter of the program at The World Business Awards. Conducted annually and currently in the second year of its international launch, The World Business Awards seeks to engage with the world’s business, innovation and technology leaders through a global recognition and knowledge building initiative that is underpinned by the program’s established framework. The program engages with organisations worldwide to benchmark the full spectrum of their products, services and initiatives and to review their business performance. The cycle culminates in the recognition and celebration of organisations that implement world-class business initiatives and industry leading products and services on a prominent and far-reaching scale. All entries must be entered in the regional chapter where the organisation is based.

Organisational participation includes private companies, publicly listed companies, multinational subsidiaries, not-for-profit organisations, non-government organisations, educational institutions, franchise systems, partnerships, government departments, government agencies, local government and statutory bodies operating in Australia.

Initiatives can include but are not limited to projects, programs, processes, systems, technologies, developments, ventures and undertakings.

Entries are assessed utilising a robust and dynamic framework to ensure that the assessment process is pertinent and objective. The World Business Awards Framework (WBA Framework) is utilised as a structured model of assessment that enables the participating organisations to be benchmarked against world class performance standards. The Framework consists of specialised assessment modules pertaining to the evaluation criteria for each of the award categories. The criteria and sub-criteria provide a robust set of requirements that are used as the methodology for benchmarking and learning among the participating organisations.

Organisations that participate are provided with the unique opportunity to benchmark themselves against the top performers globally. The recipients are acknowledged for their achievements and recognised as the elite of their industry earning a place amongst a distinguished group by having their products, projects, initiatives, contributions and achievements recognised on a prominent and far-reaching scale. The program provides the ultimate platform for building knowledge, increasing brand awareness, equity, loyalty and retention through increased exposure, recognition and prestige. This establishes a valuable resource that can be used extensively to create opportunities for publicity, positive organisational profiling and heightened brand awareness within the respective industries both nationally and internationally.
