Health & Safety
Safety is a core consideration for the electricity sector: both the safety of the public we serve and the safety of the workforce that operates the electricity system.
Working with our members and other stakeholders to maintain and further improve the industry's safety record has been a fundamental principle of electricity companies across Europe. We are guided by a will to learn from the past to ensure that our members are equipped for the future.
Electricity companies have implemented rigorous health and safety measures to reduce potential harm to workers. Every two years we report figures to monitor our progress - as set out in our Environment and Sustainable Development Report. We also regularly exchange best practices on health and safety. This allows our companies to benefit from each other's experiences and to identify and address potential risks to employers and contractors, as well as to society, in a timely manner.
