Health and Safety
It is important to maintain high standards of Health and Safety in the workplace across the energy industry. From our generator through to our supplier members, Energy UK aims to promote best practice through comparing and monitoring the Health and Safety standards and processes of our members spanning the supply chain. Whether through facilitation of benchmarking exercises, production of risk assessments or simply guidance on regulation or legislation implementation, our goal is to support our members and stakeholders to ensure the energy industry's workforce is Safe and Healthy at work.
As part of the work carried out in this space, Energy UK contributes to the ENA's Powering Improvement strategy within which members have the opportunity to address a host of Health and Safety risks. With themes which change yearly (occupational health, asset management, contractor engagement to name a few), ENA and Energy UK members along with industry Trade Unions have created a 2 phase plan ensuring the UK energy industry continues to be a world leader in Health and Safety performance. Find out more about the Powering Improvement strategy. Energy UK also contributes to the Health and Safety Executive's Helping Great Britain Work Well strategy which aims to protect our workforce through management of risk, supporting innovation and increasing productivity.
We also work closely with other industry stakeholders and government bodies including the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), Public Health England (PHE) and Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL) to ensure our members are as well equipped as possible to allow for the above to take place.
Our members produce a variety of publications and reports which mirror the work Energy UK carries out for industry on Health and Safety. We create industry positions on industry standards, legislation and regulation so government and stakeholders are firm in the knowledge that our industry welcomes the challenge to continue to improve its high standards of Health and Safety.
