Public Safety Management
Our Public Safety Management System is in accordance with regulations 50 and 51 of the Electricity (Safety) Regulations 2010.
Under this standard WEL Networks will:
- Systematically identify the hazards associated with its electricity distribution operations that present a risk of harm to the public or damage to property.
- Assess the risk associated with each hazard for its likelihood and level of severity.
- Ensure all control measures are in place, in proportion to the assessed risk level to eliminate or minimise each hazard throughout the life cycle of the asset.
Our Public Safety Management System is fully documented and its performance regularly monitored in order to demonstrate that the levels of public and property safety are improving over time. It is audited annually by an accredited Certification Body and we must submit a statutory declaration of compliance to WorkSafe every 5 years.
