Theme: Safety. Power. People
Despite the predominance of technological advancement in the electric utility industry, line workers remain irreplaceable pillars of utility operations. Line workers work on the transmission and distribution (T&D) lines, executing imperative functions such as construction, inspections, and repairs and maintenance work after a power outage. These pivotal duties are also executed during disaster restoration, after a hurricane or any major catastrophe. Line workers also work with high voltages of over 11, 000 volts or more, and often in extreme weather conditions; sometimes on live electrical lines.
Therefore, the safety of line workers at the physical and psychological levels is quite critical. Line workers are also lifelong learners by design, due to the constant emergence of new technologies, and the regular updating of safety protocols. In recent times, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) requirements for line workers have been revised to ensure optimal safety and efficiency obligations are met. Considering these conditions, CARILEC assumes a fundamental role in supporting the continuous learning of line workers through various methods and methodologies.
This year, the Line workers’ and Manufacturers’ Symposium, under the theme, “Safety. Power. People.” will feature a virtual seminar with key speakers from the electric utility industry, providing expert information on the safety of line workers. The seminar will also provide a forum for utilities to discuss the challenges and successes of line workers in maintaining the high standard of delivery and execution of their work, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. CARILEC’s associate members have zealously supported this event over the years, particularly the Line workers’ Rodeo component. While the absence of the Rodeo component leaves a learning gap in the development programme, CARILEC is persistent in ensuring that other learning methodologies are utilised to sufficiently narrow this gap. It is for this reason that we are leveraging the available technology to host this event virtually and deliver the quality experience that our members and partners have become accustomed to. Reserve your space today!
