PowerNet is a finalist in the 2023 Grand Business South Awards with our Workplace Injury Prevention entry of Critical Control Framework (CCF). Workplace health and safety is PowerNet’s greatest priority and a critical success factor — we’re committed to a `safety always’ culture and `continuous improvement’ actions. Our teams work in high-risk, often remote, environments where the right controls are needed.
We’ve led the way in NZ’s electricity industry by introducing a Critical Control Framework (CCF), bringing safety, consistency and clarity to managing and making all decisions relating to critical safety points in all operational work.
CCF is crucial to our success and a significant step in achieving consistency in safety practices in our industry. PowerNet is one of only a few NZ companies using a framework like this to manage operational workflows. Achieving desired outcomes meets our requirements for coverage and consistency in managing critical risk in the work environment across all operational workers and projects and meets regulatory obligations.
Winners will be announced at the Dunedin Gala Dinner this Friday (17 November).
