Safety Overview

Our WHS Management system comprises 5 Key Elements:

 1. Policy and Management commitment - policy, leadership and support;
 2. Planning - evaluating hazards and risk, applying safe work practices;
 3. Implementation - establishing contract safety management from the start;
 4. Measuring Performance - workplace inspections and proactive monitoring;
 5. Audit and review - monitoring management and results.

Safety Leadership and Competency

WHS is at the very core of our business and we recognise the moral and legal responsibility to provide a safe and healthy work environment for employees, contractors, clients and the general public. Working in conjunction with NECA and utilising the HSEQ Management System, all our staff have ready on-site access to all policies, procedures and safety documentation. This ensures we maintain our safety standards and assists with continuous promotion and development of our safety systems and the way they are implemented. The safe and successful delivery of our projects is reflected by a confident management team with an organisational structure that has the capacity to match the scope of work demands and schedule milestones. We ensure that the mature team of managers and supervisors working on our projects are all trained and supported to be leaders in:

 ●  how to identify hazards and apply appropriate controls;
 ●  how the WHS management system functions on site;
 ●  understanding the project Workplace Health and Safety management plan;
 ●  how to get safety performance consistent with our objectives and targets;
 ●  ensuring implementation of policies and procedures by both staff and subcontractor groups;
 ●  how to sustain the ongoing positive focus of improving safety performance through initiatives and disciplined leadership;
 ●  how to balance production effort and time to spend on safety related issues.

All staff employed by Team Electrical Services, including apprentices supplied by Electrical Group Training, are required to complete a comprehensive safety induction before they commence working on our work sites. Our induction and safety program emphasise the following approaches:

 1. Safety happens when YOU take responsibility;
 2. Right Attitude – Working Safely.

In the initial stages of receiving project contracts, customised Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS) and Site Safety Plans are created and submitted to the client. Such documents are adhered to by all staff on site throughout the duration of works, in combination with regular job risk assessments. Any discrepancies or queries are dealt with as a matter of urgency with the appropriate safety representative. Safety is the first item on the agenda at management and toolbox meetings and Senior Managers conduct regular safety observations (either informally during walk-arounds or formally on all sites on a regular basis) and inspections with safety representatives and advisors. By organising an independent Workplace Health and Safety representative to make monthly visits and carry out independent audits, our processes and procedures are regularly examined and amended as necessary in order to maintain the highest possible safety standards. In addition, by setting yearly ‘stretch hurdles’ of injury frequency rate reduction we have been able to mark our improvement and effort to continue having less injuries with lower severity. As we continue to strengthen the WHS competency of our line management, senior managers, contract managers, engineers, team leaders and supervisors and all those who manage and direct people, we continue to improve our capacity to fulfil a safe workplace.

Quality Management Systems

Team Electrical Services’ quality management systems are designed, owned and continually developed to maximise quality. The management policies and practices published in this overview and associated documents reflect our quality objectives and provide the basis for ensuring that quality is central to all our operational activities.

The systems and practices we employ:

ensure the Safety, Health and Welfare of our employees and any clients, sub-contractors or community members who either, directly or indirectly are involved in our operations;
protect and when feasible, enhance, the environments in which we undertake work; and
provide our employees with the opportunity to develop their skills and competencies

We consistently strive to deliver products and services:

at the right time, in the right amounts, in the right condition, to the right place;
meeting the agreed and promised characteristics and specifications;
being accompanied by the necessary and agreed documentation;
complying with the provisions of the appropriate laws and regulations; and satisfying agreed contractual and commercial considerations

Our objectives are achieved by developing and implementing strategies, plans and practices that are consistent with our business policies and related customer, shareholder and statutory requirements. Procedures and work instructions are issued by operational and support functions to provide a basis for training and uniform implementation of agreed practices. The management team conducts regular site inspections to ensure not only adherence to our systems, but also to assess the measure to which expectations are being exceeded.


Through its operating entities, Team Electrical Services works within Quality Management Systems accredited to AS/NZS ISO9001:2000. In addition, Team Electrical Services maintains systems in accordance with AS/NZS ISO 14001: 1996, Environment Management Systems and AS/NZS 4801-2001 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems.
