The safety of our communities and the Health, Safety and Welfare of our employees is and always will be our first priority. Our uncompromising attitude towards maintaining our strong Safety Culture means we are dedicated in our pursuit of excellence in safety practices.
All Opticomm employees and contractors understand and accept their individual and collaborative responsibility to provide a safe and healthy workplace for themselves, their colleagues, customers and suppliers.
Opticomm builds and maintains optical fibre networks that are operated and used in an ecological and sustainable manner. The delivery of multiple communication services through a single fibre optic cable provides not only monetary savings to the communities we service, but also minimises the impact on the environment.
At Opticomm we have a motto of “Ban the Box” because we believe above ground Fibre Distribution Hubs (FDHs) are detrimental to the aesthetics of an estate. The traditional large above ground hubs are also vulnerable to damage and are not waterproof. All of Opticomm’s cable infrastructure is underground and 100% waterproof, so even in a flood, our services continue to work. These advanced features enhance the sustainable efficiency of our networks.
We use ‘REDUCE – REUSE – RECYCLE’ as the basis of our environmental objectives, whether reducing packaging from our suppliers, recycling toner cartridges at our offices or reusing plastic water bottles. All Opticomm employees have undergone environmental awareness training and adopt environmental initiatives as part of their daily routines.
