03rd Jun 2016

enet, Ireland’s largest open access network operator, has been selected to join an elite group of 35 companies worldwide that hold “A” grade accreditation in Safe-T-Cert.

This is the second year in succession that enet has won this important accreditation, highlighting the company’s commitment to excellence in health and safety for all employees. The award was made after an annual external safety audit held at enet’s Limerick Headquarters last month (October 2016).

“I’m delighted that for the second year running, we are part of this elite band holding the “A” Grade,” said Conal Henry, enet CEO. “It is proof of how our staff continually strive for the highest levels of diligence and professionalism in the work place, within a proactive incident and injury-free culture.”

enet first attained Safe-T-Cert accreditation in 2013, with a “C” grading, followed by a “B” in 2014. As part of its commitment to the best possible health and safety practices, enet ensures all Field Supervisors and Project Managers are highly trained and hold multiple training certificates including MSIC (Managing Safely In Construction), PSDP (Project Supervisor for Design Process) and PSCS (Project Supervisor Construction Stage).

The Safe-T-Cert programme is a definitive safety management system, “developed for the construction industry by the construction industry” with the aim of improving health and safety management. It provides objective standards and certifies contractors whose safety management systems have been assessed and can demonstrate that they meet its rigorous requirements. These cover a number of procedures, including training, contractor-management, toolbox talks, site rules, emergency procedures and PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) policy.
