A WATCH-ful Eye


By: Rene Vidrine

Thank you to Water Transfer Operator Franklin Barr for submitting a near miss WATCH card while on a job in Sweden Valley.

While draining out a pump with an air compressor, air went through a check valve, which added pressure on the suction of a pump. Franklin noted that his coworker went to take the hose off, but he stopped him from disconnecting the hose without first bleeding off the pressure through a ball valve.

As a result, Franklin and his coworker now both double check all values for trapped pressure.

Great job, Franklin, for your commitment to Danos’ value of safety!
