Prior to an employee or contractor going inside your home or business, health screening will take place. Results of screening will determine if the appointment will proceed and the type of protective equipment to be used.

Dam Safety

 

Stay Safe Around Dams

Water near hydro dams can change from scenic calm to deadly torrents in a matter of seconds. Use caution near dams and surrounding waterways and always check for warning signs.

  • Listen and watch for sirens and strobe lights. These are warnings that water levels are changing.
  • Stay outside of public safety booms and buoys.
  • Stay clear of generating facilities including dams, powerhouses, power lines and all electrical equipment.
  • Always supervise children and help them to learn how to keep safe.
  • Obey all warning signs and keep out of fenced, gated, and restricted areas.
  • Stay well back from the edge of a waterway where footing may be slippery or the bank unstable.

The ice around dams in winter is not safe. Ice near these facilities is thin because the current and water levels are always changing. Rapid temperature changes can cause ice to melt and the ice around our facilities may be weak because of changing flows and water levels.
