Safety

For everyone working at EA Networks, safety is more than just a priority, it is a core value and an integral part of every function of our organisation.

No financial goal, work task or schedule demand overrides our requirement for safety.

This applies to everyone who works for, or contracts to EA Networks, including subcontractors.

Our comprehensive safety policy includes:

Training On-site training for lines crews, all staff and contractors as well as regular Safety Day events.

Equipment - All crews working for EA Networks are required to wear personal protective equipment (PPE). This includes fire-retardant overalls, safety glasses, insulated gloves, safety boots, safety helmets and all other task-specific safety equipment.

Standards - Every contractor working for EA Networks is required to accept and implement our standards as part of their contract for the work.

To report broken power lines or equipment, please call us on 0800 430 460.
