Safety near the worksite

Hydro-Québec asks residents to be particularly careful near the jobsite. Various types of equipment will be in operation to carry out the work, including at night and on weekends. It is therefore very important to remain clear of the work areas. Hydro-Québec will ensure supervision of the work site. The company will see to it that all technical, environmental and safety requirements associated with the construction work are being met. Specific measures to mitigate the impact of the work will be implemented, contributing to the harmonious coexistence of the worksite and land users.
