To install and maintain Canada’s electrical grid, lineworkers often operate in extreme conditions. During catastrophic events, says the Canadian Electricity Association, lineworkers must deal with one or more occupational hazards, including

  • high-voltage contact
  • working at heights
  • challenging weather conditions
  • welding, cutting and burns

Lineworkers also play an instrumental role to make the environment safe for volunteers and first responders by assessing electrical hazards and removing any live wires.
