Avoid risks in electrical work

Electrical work safety is part of the daily routine for everyone who works on transmission lines and substations. Typical hazards include induced voltage on the grid and the proximity of other grids.


A major responsibility

Fingrid’s main grid encompasses over 14,000 kilometres of transmission lines and more than 100 substations. The operation of electrical installations and electrical work in such installation was the responsibility of Pasi Lehtonen until 2019. As the proportion of Fingrid’s own electrical work began to increase and Lehtonen was approaching retirement, it was time to begin the process of handing down all the essential but unrecorded knowledge to the new people in charge of electrical work and of the operation of electrical installations.
