One of the biggest health and safety risks for MainPower employees is vehicles speeding through their roadside worksites.
MainPower Operations Manager Rob Wilson says there have been a number of near misses lately, “We understand that traffic and pedestrian restrictions can be inconvenient, but the work we’re doing is essential. In order to do that work safely, we need the public to help out by following safety signage and instructions.”
“Slowing down when moving through worksites will only add an extra minute or so to your journey. A few extra minutes isn’t really much to ask, especially when you consider the consequences of a mistake around roadworks,” Wilson adds.
For safety's sake, please slow down when approaching work crews at the side of the road and follow all safety signage and instructions.
