Providing a safe and healthy workplace is our primary obligation to our employees, our communities and our shareholders. It plays a crucial role in employees’ confidence, motivation and productivity, providing a healthy space where a culture of innovation can take root.
That is why we establish policies and procedures to create healthy and safe workplaces and a culture where healthy lifestyles are encouraged. This is a shared responsibility, involving a commitment from the executive team, bargaining units, management, contractors and each individual employee.
Safety committees are now in place across AVANGRID operating companies, supporting active employee and management engagement in the safety process. The company continues to make progress toward full compliance with the widely recognized OHSAS 18001 and new 45001 health and safety standards, and expects to have the entire AVANGRID organization registered by the end of 2018. Avangrid Networks for New York and Maine maintained OHSAS 18001 certification with a successful OHSAS surveillance audit.
