Keeping the public safe

Our public safety management system helps ensure that Transpower’s assets do not present a significant risk of serious harm to any member of the public or significant damage to property.

It’s a framework for good practice in our safety and operating processes, which use policies, procedures and codes of practice to identify hazards and to manage and control risks. It includes procedures for reasonably foreseeable emergency events, so that hazards to the public or their property from assets that may arise are adequately controlled.

The system integrates with our asset management and safety management systems. Together, they demonstrate that all practicable steps have been taken to ensure our assets do not present a significant risk of serious harm to any member of the public or significant damage to property.
