Ever wonder how big machinery is handled on steep hills? Project specifications and location alike often require extra considerations and safety measures – for example, ROWs that run through hilly or mountainous terrain can mean windy and rainy days that can cause serious problems for equipment and crews.
Here are some ways our crews go above and beyond:
- Tailgate talks: daily meeting to discuss that day’s plan, safety measures and any other applicable considerations
- Safety measures: towing equipment up the ROW safely, without damaging the machinery or surrounding areas
- Securing equipment: sometimes requires chaining to other equipment
