Safety at Work

In our position as an electrical utility and a growing energy business, we discuss safety and safety leadership every day at the most senior levels. We believe that safety is a responsibility that we all share, and we’re committed to keeping every employee safe on the job.

Working towards our safety goal of zero workplace injuries, we’ve adopted a strong safety culture that emphasizes the need to think safety first at all times. This means:

  • Planning and taking action to avoid potentially hazardous situations
  • Ensuring equipment is ready and maintained for its intended purpose
  • Knowing that everyone is properly trained and shares our concern for safe operations
  • Doing what we can to protect fellow workers and our families

Our former President and CEO, Ed Martin, is a founding member of the Newfoundland and Labrador CEO Safety Charter. By signing the Safety Charter, we have committed to the belief that:

  • Nothing is more important than the health and safety of employees and visitors to the workplace.
  • Sound business strategies, processes, and good health and safety performance are the foundations of business success.
  • Effective management of health and safety is achieved by spotting the hazards, assessing the risks, and finding a safer way, every day.
  • Leadership is important for the continuous improvement of workplace health and safety.
  • Environments that empower and enable all employees to participate and work collaboratively are necessary for developing, promoting, and improving health and safety at work.
  • Health and safety efforts that extend beyond the workplace can be achieved by building partnerships that support related initiatives within the community.
