We deliver safe outcomes every day for ourselves, our workmates, contractors and the community.

At Powerlink, safety is essential – for our employees, contractors and the community. It’s a Board sponsored initiative which everyone in Powerlink owns and drives to continually improve our safety practices and outcomes.

We take a proactive approach to health and safety, where safety is regarded as essential for all; health and well being are protected and promoted; and safety is integrated into all work practices. All our employees, contractors and visitors are expected to behave and work in a safe manner at all times. 

Safe for Life is our program to further develop our safety culture so that we always make the safest choice in all that we do – whether we’re onsite, in the community or working on a landholder’s property. 

It is a mindset that takes our approach to safety beyond compliance: it is our way of working, our way of life. Safe for Life was established to improve our safety practices and outcomes and sharpen our focus on our vision and corporate strategies - both of which implicitly state the importance of safety in our business. Our safety vision is: 

We deliver safe outcomes every day for ourselves, our workmates, contractors and the community.

Safe for Life is a program of eight focus areas designed to raise awareness of safety and provide the environment for challenging unsafe behaviours. Our Safety Leadership Training is looking to actively reduce the number of unsafe acts as statistics show this positively impacts the number of incidents especially those resulting in injuries. Consistency of standards and our approach to risks and hazards is combined with implementing new practices for dealing with safety issues to provide a safer work environment.
