New Safe Working Protocols
Safety has been and will always be our first priority. Nothing is more important to us than keeping you, your team, and your loved ones safe.
Electric utilities have been an essential service from the beginning of the global pandemic, and we could not be prouder of our tradespeople for putting themselves on the frontline to help keep customers safe.
Even as the world continues to change, our priority in ensuring proper safety procedures and protocols has not. We continue to take added precautions as the economy opens up again and as work continues to pick up.
Some of the ways we are making sure to stay safe on the worksite include:
- Any ground disturbance or digging should not begin until submitting a locate request to clickbeforeyoudig.com at least three full working days in advance of any project in order to dig safely.
- When Alberta One-Call sends a utility to locate and mark buried utility lines in response to a request, the locator will be wearing appropriate PPE (personal protection equipment) and will maintain a safe physical distance according to the updated protocols, in order to keep themselves and homeowners safe, related to COVID-19.
