This year’s theme, Serving with pride, speaks to the expertise and dedication our employees bring to building this community. Year-over-year, we report on the many achievements of our company, which would not be possible without the dedication of each and every Utilities Kingston employee.
Together, they manage, maintain and operate local, multi-utility infrastructure. Whether wearing orange in the field, or working from our offices, our employees share cross-functional expertise and are recognized in our local community and broader industry for their knowledge and hard work.
Public involvement helps us engage our community in meaningful conversations, as we learn to better serve our customers and support Kingston’s goal of becoming A Smart and Livable 21st Century City. We’re part of the fabric of our community and proud to serve on boards and memberships. Through local sponsorship, we give back to our community, while continued improvement and innovation are our focus on recent research partnerships.
Did you know that in 2018 we responded to over eight thousand requests to locate underground utility services and ensure public safety? We also hosted 72 health and safety training sessions, providing over three thousand hours of employee training, making sure everyone goes home safe at the end of the day.
We’re proud of the unique multi-utility model in Kingston. It allows for the efficient coordination of projects that combine water, sewer, gas, electricity, streetlights and traffic signals, and road works. This leads to timely and cost-effective completion of projects, with less disruption to you.
