Data Center Safety Council is announced as a new industry consortium

May 1, 2024, St. Paul, Minnesota: Yondr, EdgeCore and STACK Infrastructure are pleased to announce the organisation of a new industry collective action consortium, Data Center Safety Council, facilitated by Antea® Group. 

The purpose of this establishment is to form a unified approach towards ensuring safety and wellbeing of personnel in data center operations. The industry has seen a period of rapid growth adding urgency to the need for standardisation of best practices, knowledge sharing and collaboration, and defining resources for training and development. This industry group will provide advocacy for aligning health and safety regulations and addressing operational health and safety challenges in a consistent approach. 

The vision is to create a forum where health and safety professionals work collaboratively as an industry group to improve data center worker safety holistically. Together we will address common issues and seek long-term solutions with vendors and suppliers for the benefit and safety of data center workers.  

“I am inspired to see key leaders in the data center industry step forward to take initiative and create collective action for the safety of their workers. We are excited to launch key workstreams this year to create better industry alignment and look forward to more members joining,” said Peylina Chu, Senior Vice President, Antea Group USA, serving as the Executive Director of the Data Center Safety Council. 

Yondr’s VP HSE, Gareth Evans, also commented “The data center sector is relatively young in comparison to other industries. The challenges we face at Yondr are the same challenges that others encounter. By leveraging the experience and knowledge of the wider community in this industry, we can achieve so much more –  and quicker too. Being a part of the Data Center Safety Council will enhance our ability to support those people who face the highest risks of working in data centers.” 

Prioritising health and safety initiatives is crucial to manage the hazards resulting from a surge in infrastructure development, increased operational complexities, and a lack of skilled workers to manage and maintain these facilities. Proactively addressing health and safety concerns is not only a practical necessity, but also a strategic guide for the sustained success of the data center industry. 

The founding members of Data Center Safety Council are all leaders in the industry and well positioned to create collective action and consistency for the industry as a whole with this new organisation.  

The Data Center Safety Council is excited to extend an invitation to recruit more peers in the data center operations industry to join us in this mission.
