The safety of our people and the community is our top priority

We’re committed to ensuring the safety of our people and our community.

We work hard to ensure we have a safe and secure electricity network that minimises risk for the community, including minimising the risk of fire starts involving our infrastructure. You may also have seen our community safety advertising, which highlights how you can keep yourself safe.

We also strive for a workplace free of injuries, providing our people and our contractors with the appropriate information, instruction and training to manage a range of safety risks associated with working on our electricity network.

This safety area of our website shares our initiatives and what we’re doing to keep our people, our contractors and the community safe.
