Electrical Group Training is the biggest employer of electrical apprentices in Western Australia, meaning we have a duty of care to protect the safety of hundreds of young electrical apprentices. Providing our apprentices with a safe working environment and ensuring they develop the skills and knowledge needed to work safely in our industry, is our highest priority.
To help in this endeavour, EGT employs a team of safety experts who create safety policies and procedures of the highest standard, that are regularly reviewed and comply with changing WHS legislation.
EGT apprentices complete a range of mandatory safety training throughout their apprenticeship, and businesses must pass a safety assessment before they are approved to be EGT host employers.
And, our host employers also undertake a safety assessment every year as they continue to work with us. This ensures our apprentices are as safe as they can be.
EGT also works on a variety of safety initiatives designed to help us achieve our safety goal of No Harm. This includes our #looktwiceactonce apprentice campaign, frequent Safety Alerts to apprentices and host employers, and regularly recognising workers who demonstrate safety best practice through our No Harm Awards.
