Energy efficient data center manufacturer, Datapod, says data center knowledge is at the heart of their record on safety which this week celebrates two years without a Lost Time Injury (LTI).
Datapod is leading the way when it comes to safety in modular data center construction and the two years without any LTI’s covers the two factory locations as well as the locations to which Datapod deploys their data center infrastructure.
The result is even more impressive when you consider Datapod operates in full-scale manufacturing facilities t and deploys their modular data centers to a variety of client types in locations all around the world. Metro, suburban and rural/regional deployments each have individual challenges of which the Datapod deployment teams need to be aware.

Datapod Director Adam Smith recently recognised the achievement saying it reflects Datapod’s commitment to safety.
Mr Smith said, ‘Over the years we have built up a considerable amount of data center knowledge and our continuous improvement and development of safety policies and procedures is a testament to our dedicated staff.”
The modular nature of the Datapod System means safety can be optimized during factory production by streamlining processes and by thorough onsite risk assessments, planning and a reduced time on site during the deployment phase.
“Datapod’s safety record means customers are guaranteed high levels of safety through their supply chain. Datapod works to international and local Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems and we have developed behaviours and a culture in our workforce that has safety at the heart of our work environment,” Mr Smith said.
Datapod Workplace Health, Safety and Environment Manager Shontelle Hellyer is proud of the achievement saying it is a tangible result of Datapod’s commitment to safety and social responsibility.
“Datapod continues to deliver against increasing safety expectations. We work to international safety standards and this means we are continually innovating and improving our workplace practices. For Datapod safety is part of the way we continually exceed staff and customer outcomes,” said Ms Hellyer.
Datapod’s safety processes and procedures are independently audited as part of their ISO certifications.
