Help Keep Our Field Team Safe

Help Us Help You

Learn how you can help keep our skilled workers safe and productive when they're working in the community or on your property. Whether they're reading meters or working to make repairs or improvements, the SJG dedicated team of field workers face multiple hazards while working in our neighborhoods. Here's how you can help keep them safe when they're working on your property or in your community.

Slow Down Near Work Crews

SJG employees and contractors regularly work on or around roads and highways. For your own safety and for the safety of our workers, please slow down when you see SJG employees working, be attentive, and pay attention to where safety cones are placed.

Follow directions given by our flaggers and watch for signage, cones, barriers, and vehicle lights. Their job is to control the flow of traffic and keep everyone safe. If you are walking, jogging, or riding your bike, treat the worksite like you are driving a car and follow the detour provided. Be patient and remain calm.

Secure Pets

If a an SJG worker needs to enter your home or yard, dogs should be kept in a room with the door closed, away from where our employees will be working. Dogs may also be secured in a kennel cage. Make sure family members know why the dog is secured during the service call to avoid an accidental escape!

Make Sure Equipment and Meters Are Accessible

We ask that you keep our equipment well-lit and clutter-free. Please notify us of hazardous conditions at your location, such as loose steps or railings. Keep bushes and shrubs trimmed away from meters.

Keep in mind that first responders may need to quickly access your equipment during emergencies. Don’t build enclosures, decks, porches, or similar structures over or around your meter.

Make sure that the path leading to your meter or appliance is safe and properly lit too.

Be Aware of Weather

If you're expecting an SJG employee during the winter months, please clear a path to your home. Don't forget to clear your front steps as well.

Please remove snow and ice from your outdoor meters and other equipment before our workers arrive. Utility meters should be cleared using a broom, not a shovel, to avoid damage.

Let’s Work Together to Make Safety a Priority.
