Project: Developing Toolkits for Transgrid Trade Staff
Scope of works: Toolkits to work on low voltage equipment
TransGrid is the owner, operator and manager of the NSW high voltage transmission network and is committed to delivering a safe, secure, reliable and economically efficient network. Transgrid are transparent in how they conduct and enforce Health and Safety regulations on all of their work sites, stating, “As an essential service provider operating in a high risk environment, meeting a strong standard of health and safety is core to everything we do. We promote a positive safety culture in which all employees and contractors are encouraged to actively manage their safety and the safety of others”.
Highlighting uncontrolled discharge or contact with electricity, exposure to hazardous materials and mobile powered plant incidents, in their top nine high consequence risks, it is no surprise that Cirlock are on the list of Transgrid preferred suppliers.
Transgrid contacted Cirlock to work with them to develop tool kits for their trade staff to use for work on or near low voltage equipment. The main reason for Transgrid contacting Cirlock initially was that they wanted to use an Australian based company. Transgrid were looking for a local company that had the equipment they required, that would also allow them to evaluate the products and assess suitability for their specific needs.
On evaluating the Cirlock products Transgrid established that Cirlock could provide exactly what they needed, as well as being fully confident that the Cirlock products would adhere to the company’s strict Health and Safety policies. James Mason, EO, Safety Rules Coordinator at Transgrid, explained that the service they received from Cirlock was impeccable. “Nicole was very helpful”, said James. “She even offered to supply some kits for a safety display event prior to the invoice being finalised, that level of service goes a long way in business”.
Transgrid were extremely happy with the quality of the products they received from Cirlock. Management at Transgrid said they would definitely use Cirlock again and would have no hesitation in recommending both their products and service to other industry professionals.
