CALGARY, ALBERTA (Globe Newswire – November 24, 2021) – For the fifth consecutive year, AltaLink has been awarded the Canadian Electricity Association (CEA) President’s Award for Safety Excellence.
While working with new safety restrictions because of the COVID-19 pandemic, AltaLink employees continue to deliver top safety performance in serving the more than three million Albertans that rely on its transmission system.
“This award is thanks to the commitment of our employees to look out for each other, often in challenging conditions, so that everyone can go home safe at the end of the day,” said Gary Hart, AltaLink President and Chief Operating Officer. “I am very proud of the AltaLink team for how they continue to do the critical work that keeps the lights on in Alberta, while keeping safety top of mind.”
