Western Power has scenario-based contingency plans in place that ensure critical and essential services are maintained for the community in the event that staffing levels could be affected by outside events.
With the COVID-19 situation rapidly changing, we may need to be flexible with our resources to ensure that we supply safe reliable power to all Western Australians.
We’re taking steps to ensure the health and safety of all our employees and to minimise the risk of transmission of the virus.
We are closely monitoring staffing levels and will respond to significant increases in employee absences.
If we need to re-schedule some work, then we will contact our customers to discuss the reasons why and work with them to find a solution.
To make sure our supply chains are not compromised by COVID-19-related disruption, we have investigated our procurement channels and sources to establish adequate stock is already at hand.
This review of current stock holdings has revealed that, except for a handful of (non-critical) products, we have no current risk of stock shortages in relation to COVID-19 response planning.
We will continue to work with our customers and will be providing regular updates via our website.
