Rolling with the Punches: Workforce Resiliency in the Face of Disasters, Pandemics and More
Weather and climate disasters are at an all-time high, with pandemics and social unrest making the situation worse. In 2019 alone, the US was impacted by 14 separate billion-dollar disasters consisting of floods, storms, cyclones, and wildfires.
With so many potential outcomes and no way to accurately predict what will happen next, workforce resiliency has become as critical as grid resiliency. Today—quite literally—utilities must be prepared for anything. Learn how Colorado Springs Utilities is using mobile workforce management technology to respond to these events.
Emergency Events and Outages – Restorations in the New Normal
Along with unprecedented flooding, fires, and weather-related emergencies, utilities must now proactively monitor worker contacts and health to ensure they have adequate staff on hand to maintain grid operations – all while protecting their workforce and the communities they serve. Hear from Fortis BC how utilities are using mobile workforce management for worker health and safety, and how event management technologies help utilities effectively manage field operations during emergencies.
Modernizing Asset Inspections for the 21st Century
With assets spread across such a vast area, FortisBC once had to rely on archaic tools, including manual record-keeping and paper maps—as well as siloed and stale data—to stay on top of its asset inspection cycles. Learn how FortisBC now has the data generated from inspections flow directly to their EAM system for a real-time view of the operation, providing the utility with a fully automated, integrated, and digital compliance model.
Proactive Planning and Customer Communications for the Next Pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic has introduced some unique requirements when it comes to safety protocols and resiliency planning, both for today and future planning.
