Northpower has committed to the challenge –let’s take safety to the next level.
To deliver on this challenge, we use the wisdom of those closest to our work to develop an approach that ensures we protect our staff, our communities and others we work with.
Our health & safety forums enable this approach from both the top down and bottom up.
The forums occur around the country and are accessible to all business units and everyone at Northpower.
The forums are created to discuss the health and safety risks we face, develop safe systems of work and ensure everyone gets home safely every day.
At safe team meetings, these groups discuss and work through current health and safety issues.
Local safety forums shape the implementation of the Health & Safety Plan in each region.
Our national safety forum creates, verifies and decides the priority of the Health & Safety Objectives each year.
The HSQE Steering Committee made up of the Executive Leadership Team is chaired by our Chief Executive and meets monthly to validate the content of the HSE Strategic Plan and hold our people to account on the plan, its progress and prioritisation.
They also track Northpower’s critical risks closely to ensure they’re being managed effectively.
