Xi Safety Contributes to Altalink Heartland Transmission Project

Posted on

Recently, Altalink’s Heartland Transmission Project reached a successful completion, on time, under budget and with superior safety performance.

The project involved the construction of a high voltage line connecting the Heartland Region northeast of Edmonton to existing infrastructure in South Edmonton.

But the project didn’t start out this way. Heartland kicked off with a series of incidents that led Altalink to reach out to us. We were able to send a trusted HSE Worksite Representative to diagnose the sources of Altalink’s concerns.

Over a period of three months, Xi Safety was present on the project to collect baseline observational data of the underlying issues, and we worked with Management to craft a Corrective Action Road Map to get the project back on track. Altalink management was responsive to our feedback and implemented many of our recommendations.

We want congratulate Altalink on the successful completion of this project, and thank the project management team for their proactive approach, foresight and demonstrated commitment to Safety.

If your project is kicking off on the wrong trajectory, or if you want to know how you can get safety back on track, give us a call. Let us know the answer to this one simple question:
