Safety is paramount within the electricity supply industry.  The industry Workplace Safety Strategy to 2020 developed under the auspices of the EEA outlines the industry health and safety vision, aims and aspirations extending to 2020.  The statement identifies focus areas to fulfil these aspirations, and the aim is to lift electricity supply industry safety performance through vision, direction and co-ordinated action into the future.  The Strategy builds on the existing legislative framework, Government’s Workplace Health and Safety Strategy and the work towards safety excellence by industry stakeholders, other industries, employee organisations and safety research groups.   The Strategy is a living document that will be regularly reviewed.  The EEA welcomes comment or suggestion from industry, regulators and other stakeholders with a view to better realising the safety vision for the New Zealand electricity supply industry.

Technical expertise forms the basis of the electricity supply industry and maintaining currency of knowledge is important for all engineers. The challenge for the industry is to have the right people skills available to build, operate and maintain existing and future assets.
