This summit is designed for gas and electric utility safety professionals, and spans across three unique, topical tracks: Safety Strategy + Policy, Electric Safety Work Methods, and Gas Safety Work Methods. Content is designed to promote safety culture through discussions related to the education and training that can influence utility operations, as well as address some of the challenges and successes associated with developing strategy.

Facilitator: Ruben White, Administrator, Occupational Health and Safety, Southwest Gas
Employee involvement at all levels of an organization is critical when adopting a more proactive approach to safety.

Join this roundtable discussion to explore how companies are tracking safety-related data, both incidents and recommendations, and how this information can be used to drive positive change.

Speaker: Terry Drummond, Fleet Safety Officer, ATCO
Despite the recent proliferation of vehicle safety technology, reportable vehicle collisions have been on the rise across utility fleets. Ironically, technology is also a suspected culprit for the increase, cell phones being one of the biggest threats to any fleet. Until the future wave of vehicle automation saturates our roadways, Utilities need to devise and implement comprehensive solutions that deploy a combination of policy, technology, training and management.

Join us for a round table discussion touching on safety culture, driver training, policies and technology. Come prepared to share your issues and solutions.

In an industry where electronic data capture in the field is becoming the norm, how are companies balancing the benefits of providing electronic devices to field personnel, yet ensuring employees are not being distracted by device capabilities considered non-essential to the job. Join us for a presentation on “Distracted Learning” and end with a roundtable discussion on how companies are tackling this issue.
