A safe, healthy and competent workforce is good for individuals and good for business

Building on a track record of successful health and safety initiatives, Powering Improvement is the industry’s plan to be a world leader in this vital area.

The Electricity Industry launched its SAFELEC 2010 programme back in 2000 aiming to achieve a marked reduction in the number of days lost due to work-related injury and ill-health in line with Government targets. The final report was issued in July 2010 and is available from ENA’s website, www.energynetworks.org.

A further important factor that has helped to shape Powering Improvement is the HSE strategy “The Health and Safety of Great Britain: Be part of the solution” which we as an industry fully support. Powering Improvement will contribute to the delivery of the HSE strategy.

ENA and Energy UK Member Companies together with the industry’s four recognised trade unions, namely GMB, Prospect, Unison and Unite, with the support of HSE, continually commit to work together to achieve the visions set by Powering Improvement.
