In 2006, Alberta’s electric utilities and the Alberta Government formed the Joint Utility Safety Team (JUST) to collectively help address the common safety issue of power line contacts. JUST’s mandate is to positively affect change in attitudes and behaviours toward power line safety to help reduce the frequency of power line accidents.
Through ongoing safety awareness and industry education, including the “WHERE’S THE LINE?” campaign, JUST is committed to helping foster a long-term “culture of power line safety” in Alberta.
By pooling resources and working collectively, JUST’s six founding partners are maximizing their efforts and achieving more impact than if each organization works independently.
JUST strives to spread the word through all industries requiring work around overhead or underground power lines, including electric utilities, oil and gas, construction, agriculture, transportation and forestry.
