Linemen: Safety is Everything
Monday, April 18 was National Lineman Appreciation Day. A national day of recognition putting a spotlight on the dangerous and challenging lives of power line workers. Border States appreciates all that they do, and we #ThankALineman every day!
Taking a different angle from the typical safety training or briefing is Dennis McDade, lineman for Dominion Virginia Power. He wanted to add some fun and “cool” to safety training and created a music video called “Safety Rap.” It’s gotten more than 300,000 views on YouTube since he posted it in 2009. Plus, he and his crew have been called on to perform their safety rap at national industry events.
