Safety at work has the very highest priority within the Powerlines Group. We feel as obliged towards our employees, as we do towards our internal and external customers, partners and suppliers.
That means ‘zero tolerance’ in the field of work safety. Whatever the country, whatever the field of business – for years now our highly qualified safety officers have been working at all of our sites to optimise our systems and procedures; to hold training sessions and conduct inspections, and to inform the management and the employees of all the latest developments and findings.
for us is also all about being constantly prepared to learn and about continuous improvement. In addition to the audits, procedures, checklists, documentation, instructions and rescue exercises already established within the group, it is the task and the obligation of our employees to look after each other – with each other, eliminating sources of danger by concentrating and proceeding in a vigilant manner – and to arrive home safely every day.
60 SECONDS is the name the management has given to the issue of safety to symbolise our commitment to the development of the safety culture within the Powerlines Group.
These 60 seconds of attention to detail are the most important minute of our lives:
- 60 seconds to check out a situation (also on behalf of colleagues) before the next step is taken
- 60 seconds to check equipment before starting work
- 60 seconds that can form the thin line between ‘everything’s fine’ and an accident
- 60 seconds that are the best investment of time within an entire project
- 60 seconds to guarantee that when work is over – everyone gets home safely.
In November 2014 a safety initiative was launched throughout the entire Powerlines Group to unite all the existing and new safety measures behind the 60 SECONDS banner. A further consequence is that all safety helmets, safety clothing and our vehicles are to bear the new signet.
Good to know: Wherever you see 60 SECONDS you can be sure Powerlines is in action.
