PI Asset Management Workshop at ESB Networks
A successful corporate memory and asset management workshop was held at ESB Networks in Dublin on the 2nd June 2016. The Workshop was attended by 50+ ESB Networks’ staff, ranging from Senior Health and Safety Managers, Operational Managers, Directors, Trade Unions, and health and safety representatives. The workshop was a continuation of workshops being held at all of the ENA Electricity Members Companies with a focus on Corporate Memory and Asset Management. ESB Networks also shared the lessons learnt from an incident that had occurred recently where 2 poles had broken at Portarlington leaving a live conductor hanging low over a road, fortunately no-one was harmed, however Peter McCormick informed delegates of a similar incident where the outcome was more severe and member of the public tragically lost their life.
A number of other case studies were looked at during the workshop with a number of learning points identified, re-enforcing the key messages of following the right processes and procedures to ensure the workforce and members of the public are able to go home safe and healthy after each working day.
