AltaLink’s culture of safety
In November 2022, for the sixth consecutive year, AltaLink received Electricity Canada’s President’s Award of Excellence for employee safety as the best performing transmission company with 300 to 1,500 employees.
AltaLink employees and contractors who plan, manage, or work on our transmission line rights-of-way participate in training sessions to understand the importance of planning work-tasks and executing plans with safety top of mind.
AltaLink’s integrated Environment, Health and Safety Management System (EHSMS) conforms with both the ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System requirements, and the ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health and Safety Management System requirements. At AltaLink, health and safety excellence are core values for field and office employees. Our employees and contractors know that there is nothing more important than the safety of themselves, and each other.
