Introducing ECA WA's No Harm Awards

Safety is a core value of the ECA WA organisation. We are uncompromising in our commitment to the health, safety and welfare of our employees, customers, and community. It is our driving force and is fundamental to the way we work.

In line with this core value, we have adopted a NO HARM vision to promote a working environment that ensures the safety and well-being of all employees of ECA WA. ECA WA have implemented a program to recognise EGT host employers, and NECA Member supervisors, tradespersons and employees who contribute and show a commitment to this vision.

Congratulations to CPR Electrical Services and EGT apprentice Callan O'Connor who are the inaugural recipients of the No Harm awards.

CPR Electrical Services have received a No Harm award for their commitment and contribution to our No Harm vision. Two of the major contributors to injuries incurred by our apprentice workforce is the failure to recognise or mitigate workplace hazards and risks. 

CPR Electrical Services has implemented and maintained formal documented processes that not only periodically assess the apprentice’s attitude to safety but also trains and assesses their ability to recognise and mitigate workplace hazards and risks.

Callan is a second-year apprentice who is hosted by JW Electrical Contractors. He has received a No Harm award for exhibiting behaviours aligned with our vision. 

Callan identified and raised the issue of a lack of drinking water and unhygienic toilet conditions on the site he was working at which allowed JW Electrical Contractors to initiate the mitigation process with the Builder and have the site conditions rectified.
