KEY PERSONNEL

We have a dedicated team at Powersafe. We pride ourselves on our skilled, quality team and our excellent customer service. We employ qualified electricians to manufacture our proprietary products. Our accuracy and speed in creating our unique products (often customised) is what sets us apart. At Powersafe we work in a systematic, cohesive manner which ensures that our culture is strong and good communication is fostered.

INDUSTRY

We build power boards that are used in industrial applications such as mine sites, construction sites and large public spaces for events like festivals and markets. 

Safety is our priority – we aim to keep workers on work sites safe and our products ensure that everyone on all sorts of worksites from all sorts of industries go home safe. 

We will not build non compliant products. we will simply not risk our quality accreditation or exposure ourselves to liability in building non compliant equipment, so you can trust Powersafe to keep your site risk free at all times. 

MANAGEMENT

Michael & Vic head up the management team with key personnel who keep a tight ship. Our management processes and workflows are well thought out and ensure that the team knows what they are doing, when and how. The build of our boards is well documented in assembly instructions, which ensures our accuracy, consistency and efficiency across the board. Our customer service is seamless and the team are committed to delivering both quality product combined with impeccable customer service. 

OPERATIONS

Our lean focused operation runs like clockwork. We employ electricians to manufacture our products and have technical assistants to ensure that the electricians have everything that they need to complete the build of the boards in the most efficient timeframe.

 

Because we have 2 CNC routers on site and a laser cutter on the premises, we can manage all of the build in house – we do not outsource any part of it once our components and moulds have arrived at the warehouse. We have the capacity to grow as we have just moved into larger premises in late 2020.

Our processes ensure our administration is well organised and efficient, this is evident in our stock control and project management of our work orders all the way to dispatch and after sales.

Our admin team can administer any questions or redirect to the most suitable person with efficiency and professionalism. Our customer service response time is important to us and something we take pride in.

As a progressive company we see marketing as an essential part of our growth. As a supplier into the electrical wholesale market, we understand that our customers need good marketing to help their customers choose our quality compliant products.

With our eyes focused on a future that sees us expanding, growing into new markets and countries we see marketing as an integral part of our vision.

SALES

Our sales division are experienced and knowledgeable especially in the field of electrical engineering and the application of power in industrial applications. All of our products are backed by a warranty and a customer service promise. Each of our sales team are capable of assisting with complex problems and working with clients to solve often what appear to be unsolvable problems on site.

Our understanding of the management of mine site downtime and construction site progress helps us to develop products that meet requirements to minimise disruption.

We use Salesforce as our chosen platform to manage our sales funnel which means we know what is happening at every stage of the sales cycle. This helps us to ensure that all of our enquiries are promptly dealt with and any urgent enquiries are fed into our work order system immediately.

SERVICES

Customisation – we know that sometimes a standard product won’t fix a specific problem, which is why we can offer to customise our own standard products. This may mean that you require more outlets, safety switches, RCBO or an RCD (or maybe both). Perhaps you would like to opt for an emergency stop or indication lights – whatever your requirements – we can alter our mould cut outs to suit your desired layout. 

At Powersafe we offer a power board refurbishment service, so if you already have a Powersafe power board, we can upgrade or change out your sockets and outlets to ensure that your board is 100% compliant.  At the same time why not look at ordering new leads and accessories and have an upgraded power board kit delivered.

PRODUCTS

Our products are used in industrial applications such as mine sites, industrial plants, construction sites and even in public spaces where large scale events such as markets and festivals are being held.

Our range of products include power boards, leads, lights, RCD’s and accessories. We offer customised solutions to ensure that the exact requirements and outlets are installed onto the power boards.

We design and manufacture all power boards and leads from our facility in QLD, Australia. Our team use Fusion 360 and SkyCad to design the power boards and our state-of-the-art CNC routers, laser cutter and wire strippers to deliver the best finish to our unique products.

Qualified Electricians build our products, so we are 100% sure that the products we deliver are 100% compliant, safe and tested.

POWERBOARDS – MADE TOUGH FOR AUSTRALIAN CONDITIONS

We design and manufacture single phase, three phase and mountable / generator power boards. Our power boards are stackable, easy to carry, robust and carefully constructed. Our power boards are specified on many sites in Australia as the must have form of power distribution boards for contractors.

Risk assessment

THE POWERSAFE PRODUCTS SUPPLIED CLEARLY MEET THE HIGHEST STANDARDS AND, IN MANY CASES, EXCEED THEM

A risk assessment is required for all application of Powersafe products, no matter at a mining or construction site, or a street marketplace.

As a Business Manager or a General Site Manager, you have a ‘duty’ as the “person conducting a business or undertaking” (PCBU) to protect your business and the safety of workers –be they employees or contractors engaged at your sites.

Three basic questions to consider regarding risk assessment of Powersafe products are:

  • Is the equipment designed for the application?
  • How do you isolate the equipment or make it safe in the event of an incident?
  • Is the equipment compliant and tested?

A Risk Assessment of Portable Power Distribution Boards using AS 4801 as a guidance tool can be supplied as a comprehensive supplementary document referencing Australian Standards and the harmonised Work Health and Safety Laws as provided under the WH&S Act 2011; it’s Regulations and Codes of Practice.

“I know that my clients who are using the Powersafe range will be providing their workers with the best level of electrical protection to ensure that they return home safely each day.”

key factors on powersafe products when considering risks assessment

Emergency stop buttons are standard on Powersafe units whereas some competitors’ boards can actually be locked ‘ON’ which is very unsafe!

Other brands have no ON/OFF switches, so disconnection by unplugging can cause serious ‘flash arc’ which is unsafe on sites with explosive atmospheres.

Powersafe boards allow for normal operation by site operations without having to remove gloves.

This is standard on Powersafe boards, preventing expensive damage to equipment, while other brands rely on good luck.

For easier and safer viewing whereas competitors’ units use smoked cover which are hazardous in low light.

A quick and easy way to determine if the board is ‘live’ and all three phases are connected. Other brands observed don’t show if the board is energized.
