Our HSE Policy

Our Health, Safety and Environment Policy affirms our commitment to safety and striving towards the continual improvement of our safety performance

The Breadth of Safety

Our people are our priority, however, at APA, safety means we don’t only focus on managing the personal safety of our staff and contractors. We also place the safe operation of APA’s assets at the centre of what we do. Process safety is our recognition that we deal with potentially harmful substances as a part of our day-to-day work, and how we manage our assets is critical to ensuring the safety of our people and community members.

Our Strategy

Our strategy is to take a risk-based approach to identify actions that, when implemented, will help reduce the likelihood and consequences of harm to our staff, contractors and community members.

Real Opportunities & Role Diversity

APA encourages and supports learning and development. We are leaders in our industry and provide a diverse range of learning experiences for those wanting to develop their skills. From maintaining and managing assets, to construction, project management and negotiating commercial deals; to apprentices, engineers, marketing and finance, administration and training — APA has an eclectic array of roles — the opportunities are varied and real.

Growth

Whether you’re an apprentice, engineer or management accountant — or something completely different — there are lots of opportunities for women to join APA to grow their careers through various professional development programs, technical skills training and leadership programs.

It’s not uncommon to find our talented women sharing their work and insights at industry forums, and we’ve supported individuals financially and through flexible work arrangements so they can pursue further studies and scholarship programs abroad.

Sarah – Compliance Support Officer

“I’ve had many opportunities to develop my career with APA, including rotating roles, mentoring and job-specific training, all of which have led me to where I am today. Everyone supports and encourages your progress and you’re never made to feel that you can’t achieve more.”

Learning and development encouraged

Gender is no barrier

Ai Ling – Project Engineering Manager

“Working at APA has allowed me to continue in my chosen career of engineering, a field where you don’t see many women, but one which APA encourages women to consider as a career path. I work as a Project Engineering Manager, and I lead a multidiscipline team of engineers to meet the design scope, specifications, budget and schedule of projects being implemented by APA.”

National company

We work in cities, suburbs, country towns and in places that most Australians have never heard of. Our job locations are Australia wide. You could have the opportunity to work at a location close to home or even take a leap interstate.

Environment

Conserving the environment is high on APA’s list of priorities. Our environment and sustainability officers ensure that we consider the environment in all projects, comply with emission reporting obligations and conserve and rehabilitate any land that we disturb.

Endless Opportunities

Kerryanne – General Manager, Transmission Division

Growing Industry

Jodie – Senior Legal Counsel

“Working for APA has given me the opportunity to be part of a large company in a growing industry. As Senior Legal Counsel at APA, I’m asked to assist with a diverse range of matters, from advising on large projects — from pipelines to wind farms to solar farms — to advising on new commercial deals and everyday stay-in-business activities.”

Renewables

Interested in alternative, sustainable energy sources? So are we. APA is looking to the future: we not only do gas, but own, and are building, renewable power generation, including wind and solar farms.

Meet Jess

Learning Solutions Developer

“I feel very lucky to have been offered the opportunity to work with APA. I recently graduated from university with a Bachelor of Design (Digital Media Design) and did not even realise that an energy company would have a role suited for me. APA is a large company that is focused on internal training and development. My role involves developing learning modules — sourcing information, sometimes dry and functional, then transforming it into an interesting video or an interactive module. The people at APA are encouraging, friendly, approachable and happy to offer help when you need it. I’m lucky to work in a metro office which has unlimited tea, coffee, chai lattes and adjustable sit/stand desks! Getting a job at APA has taken me in a direction I never predicted, allowing me to use the skills I learnt at uni. I plan to do further study in the design area but am now also interested in exploring the design learning and development area to progress in my career with APA.”

Meet Cassi

Sustainability Advisor

“I chose a career at APA because I could see the company was growing on a large scale. The new company structure and the forming of an environmental team, plus the investments made in renewable energy assets and increasing focus on environmental compliance, particularly, appealed to me. My role at APA entails providing guidance and advice in all matters related to environmental issues for the APA-operated Victorian and New South Wales assets and activities. What I love most is that every single day is different and exciting! One day I could be evaluating environment-sensitive water crossing, heritage-protected areas or assisting with pipeline vegetation clearing; and then the next I am calculating emissions data or rolling out environmental awareness training across both states. I am also very fortunate to work in an incredible, supportive team that makes working not only productive but enjoyable! APA supports and encourages further study and career progression. In the future, I want to be a leader in the environment space. I’m currently studying my Master’s in Urban Planning and Environment, made easier with APA’s flexible working arrangements; learning skills I can bring to my current and future roles with APA.”
