Safety at SPL Powerlines UK

60 Seconds

Safety at work has the very highest priority within SPL Powerlines UK. Our goal is to have 0 severe accidents. Major risks must be defined and followed from design through to execution, to ensure the safety of all employees, contractors, suppliers and stakeholders. That means ‘zero tolerance’ in the field of work safety and our safety programme “60 SECONDS” is our core strategy underpinning a positive health and safety culture.

Whatever the country, whatever the field of business – for years 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 management and the employees of all the latest developments and findings.

To ensure that all our employees and business and project partners arrive home safe every day, we have defined a framework and set out the most important rules within SPL Powerlines.

UK Life Saving Rules

Every employee is committed to not only Equans Group 12 golden rules, but also the UK Life Saving Rules. We live and breathe by these rules everyday which is ingrained into our company culture. 

Our common goal is to avoid accidents at work and occupational illnesses.

Safety management for us is also 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 taking 60 seconds to review and then proceed in a vigilant manner – and to arrive home safe every day.

These rules combine the health and safety practices from across Equans and Bouygues E&S.
