This project was located near Mead, WA and was completed in 2011. The purpose of this project was to improve the existing parking area.
Due to the energized high voltage lines in close proximity to the work that was being performed, WEI had to adhere to a Site Specific Safety Plan. WEI complied with the requirements associated with the contract, OSHA, Minimum Approach Distances (MAD) and Hold Orders.
In addition, the owner supplied a Safety Watcher during the course of this project, as no piece of equipment could operate closer than 15' to the 230kv without one.
