Case Study: Concord, NC

Public power customers depend on reliable, friendly and well-trained employees to come through when they need them. That includes everyone from the customer service representatives who process bill payments to the linemen who install, repair and maintain the city’s power lines.

In Concord, the city’s entire electric team participates in career development programs operated by ElectriCities Safety and Training staff. The 24 employees — including linemen, substation, underground and meter technicians— take part in classroom training and on-the-job skill development to learn new job skills and industry best practices involving complex electric operations.

 
Public power line crews begin each job with a Job Briefing, or as it’s more commonly called, a Tailgate Meeting. The Tailgate Meeting gives the crew a chance to address any problems or questions about the job, as well as any hazards, before they start work. The meetings ensure everyone on the crew understands the work, so the crew can work safely and efficiently.
