Utility Company: Roadway Collapse

The Situation

A utilities worker noticed two holes in a roadway between vaults being used by workers for substation repair. They suspected that there may be a larger cavity underneath the asphalt. This could lead to road collapse and significant worker injury.

The Solution

The worker used the LiveSafe Mobile App to submit a tip explaining the situation and describing the location of the holes in the roadway.

The Result

Security officials received the tip and sent personnel out to examine the holes and address the issue, preventing potential injury or property damage.

"A survey by 360training.com indicated that 27 percent of utilities workers named fall hazards as one of their top two safety concerns."
