Each year, electrical workers from across the west will gather in Gresham, Oregon, to participate in the Pacific Northwest Lineman Rodeo. The rodeo is a family fun, action filled event where teams of linemen and apprentices compete in activities that test their speed, safety and trade skills, with all proceeds going to the Legacy Oregon Burn Center.
Safety is a paramount issue within the utility industry. Safety professionals work tirelessly to manage risk, avoid incidents and ensure safety through a variety of programs and initiatives geared toward employees and consumers. 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.
