Safety and Wellness is a Core Value of our organization - we take responsibility for our personal safety, the safety of our co-workers, customers and communities.

We regularly extend our commitment to safety beyond our workplace, into the communities we serve, by providing electrical safety training for school-age children, first-responders and construction trades.

School Safety Program

Our Safety Team will visit your school and community group to teach children about how to stay safe around electricity, using the Hazard Hamlet simulator as a teaching and demonstration tool. We will explain in simple terms how electricity is generated and how it reaches our homes and businesses. Provided at no charge for organizations within our service territory, the School Safety Program can be adapted for any age level.

Children's Safety Villages

The Children's Safety Village offers a variety of programs, events and services to help minimize the threats to the safety and well-being of children in our community.  In Waterloo Region, together with our neighbouring utilities, we have built a transformer station on site for children to visit. We also sponsor a Children's Hero Award each year, which recognizes students in grades JK - 8 in the Region of Waterloo who have performed a heroic act or gone above and beyond to contribute in their community. More about the Waterloo Region Children's Safety Village.

Energy+ is proud to be a community sponsor of the Children's Safety Village of Brant.
