This rule applies to everyone on an Urban Utilities worksite, regardless of whether they work for us or not, and it means that we:

  • are always physically prepared and capable of performing our duties,
  • never work beyond our normal working hours without approval,
  • do not turn up for work while under the influence of alcohol or illegal substances,
  • inform an Urban Utilities Leader if our performance is impaired by prescribed or over-the-counter medications,
  • never risk our safety, or that of others, by working while fatigued,
  • only complete workplace tasks or activities if we are licenced, trained, competent, fit  and physically capable enough to do so,
  • report all breaches of our fatigue management standards, including any instances where we are asked to breach these.
