As the Valley’s water and power and water provider, Salt River Project always seeks to educate our customers and the community about safety. In an effort to keep workers and the community safe, SRP invites construction workers, landscapers, painters and contract professionals to attend its annual free 2022 Electric Safety Workshop. It is a convenient way to learn how to stay safe on the job and around underground or overhead powerlines.

SRP has been providing its Electrical Safety Workshop for more than 30 years to keep safety top of mind for workers who run the risk of electrocution if their bodies or any portion of their equipment comes within 10 feet of a powerline.
ADOT, Asplundh, Blue Stake and other Valley safety experts also provide training to help keep our community safe. Attendees are encouraged to attend the virtual event and share the recordings with co-workers.
