We view our contractors as an extension of our team. The main goal of our Contractor Safety Program is to ensure our contractors are aware of their safety rights and obligations. Every contractor requires education on safety procedures and any potential workplace hazards.
Additionally, we expect all contractors to receive an orientation prior to beginning work and adhere to the standards we set for our own employees.
Every two years, Cambridge and North Dumfries Hydro, Guelph Hydro Electric Systems, Kitchener-Wilmot Hydro, and Waterloo North Hydro collaborate to host an electrical safety seminar for all contractors. The seminar is free to attend and brings your employees together with industry experts. The next event will be in March 2018.
