I spent the day on Friday working with Pole Line removing about a dozen transformers, about 200 feet of overhead line and two utility poles in the mill one area. It was a positive experience in all ways. My observations of the evolution: The crew came to the site prepared with their individual FLRA's started from their pre job at their primary site. They met as a group on the site and completed a group job FLRA and then did a walkthrough to discuss their steps going forward. The transformers on the west side of the concentrator contained in the switch yard were the first to be removed. Most of the work at elevation was done from a line bucket truck. When it became necessary to access the transformer platform, it was planned in advance and 100% tie off was maintained by the workers without direction from the supervisor or myself. I was informed that 100% tie off is a core requirement of their company. Proper anchor points were discussed prior to starting. Rigging practices using the pole truck to remove transformers were good (use of tag lines, area monitor, attention to suspended load). No hands on the load until it was at chest height or lower to prevent getting under the load. Operator on the pole truck followed the proper hand signals from the linemen rigging the load. When adjustments were being made, he removed his hands from the controls and held them in sight of the crew (prevents unwanted movement). Very good practice. Any pole climbing was done with modern equipment in good condition and inspected with proper attention to fall prevention. Utility pole removals were performed well and with proper safety controls. All mobile equipment was current on certs and inspected by the operators. Overall I was impressed with the crews attention to and attitudes toward working safely. Their safety practices appeared instinctive and performed without pause. Their cooperation and willingness to share information and work with me was very good..
I just wanted to take a moment to recognize Pole Line Contractors and your crew for the work that you performed at Rawhide Mine. Jim Bessey and I were very impressed with the professionalism and quality of workmanship that your company exhibited. Jim Bessey expressed many times that he was amazed by the attention to detail that your young crew showed. Please pass our acknowledgements of your performance onto your crew: Willis Bland, Foreman; Tim Whitley, Lineman; John Barret, Apprentice; and Colby Porter, Apprentice. Tri Sage will certainly be recommending Pole Line to clients in the future.
During the last fourteen months Pole Line Contractors has completed a multimillion dollar project for The Barrick-Cortez hills project near Crescent Valley Nevada. The project consisted of a 120 KV transmission line and substation. They are a professionally run organization with safety as a top priority and it has been a real pleasure to work with them.
I am presently an electrical projects engineer for Newmont Mining Corporation near Carlin, Nevada. One of my responsibilities is to work with contractors for electrical installations and pole line construction. The method of selection is generally through a bid process of qualified contractors. I have had the opportunity to work directly with Mr. Porter and his company for over a year and a half, and with more than ten contracts. The work contracted to him consisted mainly of 24.9 KV, 13.8 KV, and 4.16 KV pole line and underground feeder construction, pole type and pad mounted transformer installation. It is my present intent that Pole Line Contractors will be given the opportunity to quote on future opportunities of work, as described above.
Pole Line Contractors has regularly performed overhead power line construction and demolition work at the Goldstrike property since they began business in 2003. They work in and around our primary substations as well. Their employees work year-round in very harsh outdoor conditions, constantly subjected to gusting wind, blowing dust, haulage traffic in close proximity to the work area, extreme temperatures, both hot and cold, rain, snow, etcetera. They complete the work in reasonable time frames and respond promptly to emergencies, day, night, weekend, or holiday. Management responds quickly to any safety concerns brought to their attention and their crews respond to the ever changing environment mining can impose. Pole Line completes work as scheduled or advises in advance if problems have arisen during the course of the work that may alter a planned completion date. I feel they perform their tasks responsibly and expect to use them well into the future.
