engineer feature

When you think of a construction site you most likely go straight to the picture of tradies working primarily on building and concreting. But there is a key role that needs to be on a construction site at all times to prevent a lot of potential emergencies and accidents. And that’s an electrical engineer. 

An electrical engineer is responsible for ensuring that all configuration and installation  of electrical systems are compliant with all safety regulations. At PME PNG we ensure that all of our work sites have an electrical engineer on site at all times. We also work with only the best electrical engineers, so that you don’t have to worry about a thing.

Fatigue can be mental or physical or even both, and can be caused by a great number of factors including extended hours, increased workload, personal issues or illness. So making sure you know what’s happening with your workers on site and even in their home lives is crucial.
