We never compromise on safety, health, environment and the quality of our services. SHEQ is therefore integrated into everything we do.
Safety and Health
We are committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace and ensuring our people go home safely every day.
With beginnings as a small family business, Powerlines Plus (PLP) have always valued our team members as family. We have a bond that drives us to look after not only our own safety but the safety of our mates around us.
Our management of safety and health is based on:
Leadership – Our leaders are visible, engaged with all levels of the organisation and lead by example in driving safe behaviours.
Teamwork – Through effective engagement with our teams, we better understand the challenges and obstacles they face. We work collaboratively with our teams in order to develop and implement the most effective solutions and improvements.
Risk Focused – We embed risk management into everything we do, and we equip our people to make risk-based decisions. In consultation with our people, we have identified our highest risks and developed our Safety non-negotiables to raise awareness of our key control measures.
Positivity – Positive reinforcement is key to driving behavioural change, so we are working to reframe safety more positively. By focusing on proactive safety activities and celebrating our achievements, we are driving further engagement, investment and ownership in safety.
Empowerment – Our team members personally commit to “Think Safe. Work Safe. Home Safe.” We have also empowered each team member to issue a Stop Work Authority if they believe a task is unsafe or requires further planning.
Learning – We have an openness to learning from each other, our clients and industry partners. We learn together from our successes and incidents.
