The Canadian Electricity Association’s (CEA) Corporate Utility Members work diligently to ensure that electricity is delivered to Canadians in a manner that protects the safety and well-being of their employees, contractors and the general public. Recognizing the inherent risks associated with the business of providing electricity to customers, the industry strives for excellence in health and safety by continually reducing risk factors to minimize and eliminate injuries.

In 2012, the initial report on Achieving Excellence in Health and Safety was released to showcase five-year trends in health and safety statistics at Canadian electrical utilities. The purpose of these reports is to describe the health and safety performance trends of CEA Corporate Utility Members (CEA members), and provide details on how the industry is moving towards improved performance in all areas. While the report was developed to document the health and safety efforts of utilities, the stories about innovation and partnerships are applicable to other industries searching for ways to revitalize their best practices.
