Safety in the workplace

We believe safety starts at home. So one of our key business goals is to maintain and improve our safety record within Ausgrid. That means ensuring that our employees understand the risks and are protected at all times.

We are committed to being an industry leader in best practice safety performance by doing all we can to prevent workplace accidents and effectively managing rehabilitation of injured workers.

To assist in making our workplace safer, we have implemented a series of safety programs which include substation safety and a safety system review.

Safety rules and regulations are not limited to Ausgrid employees but also extend to anyone working on the Ausgrid electricity Network, including contractors.  Find out more in the ASP Safety Alerts section.
