Safety at OPG
 
OPG has a long-standing commitment to employee health and safety with an ultimate goal of zero injuries. To achieve this goal, OPG relies on a managed approach to health and safety, and on maintaining a strong safety culture with the support of workers and union partners. This commitment has resulted in OPG’s safety performance being consistently in the top quartile of comparable Canadian utilities.
 
The safety of the public and our staff is OPG’s number one priority. We operate 65 hydroelectric stations and 240 dams on 24 river systems. Most of these facilities are remotely controlled. As demand for electricity rises and falls throughout each day, operators stationed many kilometres away open and close dams, and start and stop generating units as needed. Water near a dam or hydroelectric station can turn dangerous quickly and without warning. We want you to be stay clear and stay safe. Please visit our water safety page for more information and to learn what OPG is doing to keep you safe.
