Health and Safety Information

Joint Utility Safety Team (JUST) 
In 2006, Alberta’s electric utilities and the Alberta Government formed the Joint Utility Safety Team (JUST) to collectively help address the common safety issue of contact with power lines. JUST’s mandate is to positively affect change in attitudes and behaviours toward power line safety, to help reduce power line incidents. Through ongoing safety awareness and industry education, including the “WHERE’S THE LINE?” campaign, JUST is committed to helping foster a long-term “culture of power line safety” in Alberta. This involves everyone working around overhead or underground power lines, including electric utilities, oil and gas, construction, agriculture, transportation and forestry industries.
