Using special fall protection personal protective equipment, fresh air monitors, and traffic zone safety measures, electricians worked alongside Water Bureau project managers, inspectors, and the construction manager to confirm integrity of the panels in the vaults.
Assessments such as these are an additional way for the Water Bureau to ensure on-site performance of installed equipment is in compliance and will perform effectively, reliably, and efficiently.
