Building and operating wind farms is an inherently risky business. At Senvion, we work very hard to mitigate these risks with an unwavering commitment to safety.
This October, the Australian team has been actively supporting National Safe Work month - an Australia-wide campaign designed to help companies stay focused on maintaining a safe and healthy workplace. The theme of this year’s national campaign is, “It only takes a moment”.
At Senvion Australia a priority focus has been on how we can all take a moment to keep safety at the heart of everything we do. In particular, the team has been concentrating on holding regular safety moments, taking the time to ensure a safe working environment and being familiar with Senvion’s policies and procedures to ensure we are all making safe choices.
The importance of safety is actively promoted across the organization. As part of National Safe Work Month - each member of the Senior Management Team visited a construction or service site to speak with local teams about safety. Importantly, every employee has been empowered to stop any activity if they believe it to be unsafe.
Senvion’s customers appreciate the extra effort that goes into ensuring a safe environment. Glenn Furlong, from the Bald Hills Wind Farm said, "Senvion has displayed a consistent initiative to act on the side of safety with any issue that may impact personal safety."
While National Safe Work Month finished at the end of October, the ongoing commitment to safety at Senvion Australia will be unchanged.
We are continuously looking for ways we can improve our practices to become a safer place to work. We have a reputation for, and expectations of, high safety standards within our Senvion teams and contractors. However, we currently have major projects under construction in Australia and Japan, and we must never become complacent.
