You will find our crews highly competent and always putting safety first with no exceptions. Our approach to our Health, Safety & Environment is proactive, where there is constant training and sharing of ideas. We have successfully developed an easy approach system through our own training school program which explains to our staff and new trainees how and why they should be competent and disciplined regarding their approach to health, safety, quality and taking the environment into account. Any improvements, lessons learned or development on health & safety, environmental and quality assurance are communicated in fortnightly meetings, individual site “toolbox talks” (performed by senior staff) and publication via our Power People Smart Tech web app. 



We employ registered master electricians who are passionate and take pride in their work, so we can guarantee the service we provide. We place a key emphasis on doing the job right the first time, no shortcuts, which means you save money in the future. We only use industry approved material and the job is not complete in our eyes until you (the customer) are happy with the work we have done.



Our staff are highly trained to attend to your needs and provide you peace of mind, there are no silly questions and we will do everything in our power to ensure you have a positive experience. We believe in providing an excellent service to take our customers pain away and to encourage repeat business. In contrast to most contracting companies that base their business on looking after their profitability and focus on preforming “tasks”, our business success is directly linked with how we serve our customers. We strive to understand our customer’s needs and build our operations to not only fulfil but accede their expectations. This is the key value that Power People excels at, we believe this is a unique quality which our competitors may not focus on. “Money is the bloodline, but it isn’t the spirit” — This quote was developed by the Power People team.



We are well versed in project and people management and invest significant time in the planning stage ensuring you do not have any surprises. We have over 15 years of success working in high stress environments and within tight deadlines. We have developed and invested heavily in the backbone and structure within our organization (our people and systems) which gives us the confidence that we will deliver on our promises.  



Our internship programe helps aspiring individuals achieve their goals and give back to the industry. We provide the opportunity to those who share our organizations values and place them in an environment where they can learn and fulfil their career goals.
