Working in the high-risk electricity sector, Essential Energy’s workforce has a heightened understanding of safety. Extending this safety awareness to an everyday activity such as driving, something many of us do regardless of our type of work, is an important link to make for all employees. Given the 40 million kilometres travelled every year by Essential Energy drivers, awareness of driver safety is of critical importance. The commitment to continuous improvement in safety performance has received support across the business, from management through to on-the-ground employees.
