Safety and Mission Zero at ENMAX

​Because a job isn't done right unless it's done safely.

At ENMAX, safety is our top priority. There is nothing more important than the health and safety of our employees, the contractors who work with us, and the public.

Management is accountable for providing a safe and healthy workplace, and all workers are accountable for their own safety and the safety of others. Our belief is that no job is so urgent that it can't be done safely, and all workplace injuries can be prevented. Through Mission Zero, our vision of an injury-free workplace, we strive for continuous safety improvement.

In 2013, we launched several initiatives and programs to keep safety top of mind for our employees and contractors:

  • We became one of the first companies in North America to implement digital tailboards. Tailboards are critical to ensuring all workers understand the hazards and procedures associated with every new job site.  The new digital tailboards, accessed via iPad or iPhone, are linked to task hazard assessments, procedures and confined space permits, making the tool an instant safety reference for work teams – without the administrative burden of paper tailboards.
  • As part of Mission Zero, we introduced Safe Actions for Everyone (S.A.F.E), quick-reference icons to remind field and office staff to exercise workplace behaviours that can prevent serious injuries or fatalities.
  • We revamped the Powerline Technician and Power Systems Electrician Apprenticeship Programs to include even more learning tools to help ensure apprentices learn everything they need to know to do their job safely.
  • In October, we launched a new office safety standard to establish safe work requirements for office staff. In 2012, almost 20 per cent of ENMAX injuries happened in the office. The new Office Safety standard outlines actions for our employees to protect themselves, their coworkers and the public from office hazards and decrease office incidents. 

We continue to build a culture that values safety and encourages all workers to make a daily commitment to working safely. As a result, in 2013 we surpassed our target of 1.40, attaining a Total Recordable Injury Frequency of 0.90.  This means that out of every 100 ENMAX employees, less than one was injured. ENMAX employees worked over three million hours this year and attention to hazards greatly contributed to our low TRIF. We had no lost time incidents for 14 months. Additionally, the Canadian Electricity Association (CEA) recognized us for our 2012 safety performance with a CEA President's Award of Excellence for Employee Safety, Bronze level.
