WAYNE KILCARRIE (41) Safety Officer

Wayno’s a bit of a dick, albeit a likeable one. With a self-proclaimed background as an “officer of law enforcement” (ex-parking inspector) and an innocently-intended racist/sexist vernacular, it’s not hard to understand why our Wayno is a divorcee. Straight-looking, well-kept, neat and single/”available”, he carries his unused gloves clipped to his belt and although he fakes otherwise, he is an unwavering stickler for the rules. Wayno at first comes over as quite the know-it-all. But when we g

ROGER PARKS (45) Foreman/Site Manager

After 25 years in the industry, ‘Parksy’ knows the business inside and out. He is the link between executives and employees. A well-balanced blend of ocker blue collar-worker and business-savvy part owner of Irvine & Raike Construction, he bends the rules to speed up progress but he’s been in the game long enough to get away with it. Still, his reputation as a corner-cutter is public knowledge. Married with two kids: Stacee (that’s with two e’s) and Jed, he is beginning to enjoy life again with

ROCKY ‘STONES’ MAROONDEZ (43) Operator/Entrepreneu

‘Stones’, ‘Balboa’, ‘John’ (The Baptist), ‘The Odd-trepeneur’: whatever name he goes by, the half Argentinian, half Italian ‘Rocky’ has an eye for peculiar business ventures. As a genuinely lovely guy, he has a smile that could start a car but as the resident alcoholic, he has the breath that could start a fire. A mini-skip of fruit entrails can usually be found on the ground outside his drill-rig cab. Rocky gives Stacee not only the heebie-jeebies but full-blown ‘His-panic attacks’. Married bu

BENNY BONNER (32) Supervisor

Benny is an out of work actor from the hit shitcom ‘Oi Mum!’ who now works in construction with a fried potato on his shoulder. An alpha male who plays down his past but relives the glory days at any prompt, he still lives the party life of an employed actor. His quasi-fame and accolades from top management’s daughter: Stacee, has allowed him to enjoy a swift movement up the corporate rung into a role as supervisor. He lures Stacee with promises of hooking her up with “the right People” and Benn

STIX (21) Labourer

Stix is so skinny he looks as though he should be married to Harrison Ford. He’s Benny’s right-hand man and as such, keeps Benny’s ego afloat as the ‘ears’ to Benny’s embellished stories of the entertainment industry. He’s a short-shorts type of dresser, complete with a 1mm haircut. He looks up to Benny but Benny constantly treats him as disposable. His creative inventions can be seen around the site/office.

FRANKY MACKENZIE (32) Leading Hand

Franky ‘Passion Fingers’ Mackenzie screws everything he touches and has all the classic signs of small-man syndrome to the point that he could bungy jump off a curb. He’s not a pretty looking man, (the doctor slapped his parents when he was born) and although he tries to instil the impression that he doesn't need to be liked, he secretly craves it. As fate would have it, he isn't. Liked. Not much anyway. Ordering people around comes naturally to Franky and he is truly baffled as to why he is no

STACEE (that’s with two ‘e’s) PARKS (19) Reception

With a pair of legs that could replace a hypnotist’s pocket watch, Roger and Cathy’s daughter Stacee ‘that’s with two e’s’ Parks is a super hottie who can’t sing to save herself but she still thinks she’s the next big thing. A very blonde receptionist with Irvine & Raike, she lives up to her stereotype effortlessly. She is a singer and is on the lookout for someone to give her the big break. Recording a song for the OHS video (which is also the closing credits song) and getting to sing with the

ABACUS (Quark Fong) (26) Quantity Surveyor

A nerdy, gay Asian quantity surveyor who is an expert with figures and helps everyone get optimal returns come tax time. He is constantly seen flinching at yobbo derogatory remarks about women and (as Wayno puts it), “other minorities”.

SHARON MCLARREN (25) Offsider

Butch by trade, even butcher by nature, Shaz carries an air of being one of the boys like she carries a shovel: convincingly.

RESPECT (27) Operator

A hip-hop loving rugby dynamo, the 27-year-old Maori doesn’t say much except for the word that gave birth to his name.

THE DVD GUY (25) Illegal DVD Retailer

He pops by about once a fortnight and turns the first-aid donger into a mobile pirated DVD warehouse. Shhh... I won’t tell if you won’t…

TRACEY (28) Accountant

A friend of the Parks family for years, Tracey comes in twice a week to cook the ahh… lunch.

DORIS (42) Roach Coach Operator

Almost good-looking in her day, Doris and her big breasts drive the maggot-wagon lunch van. Doris’ character is very visual: brown leather skin, a tummy that has it’s own moon, peroxide hair and a chest that jingles like a cup of Tetleys. She owns and runs her own business called ‘The Roach Coach’ (a salmonella breeding ground, mobile smoko/food cart) and she honestly doesn’t give a monkey’s aunt if you don’t like the food. She’s a bitter, yet hopeful divorcee and she only ever lights a cigarett
