Public tours of Bull Arm construction site to begin in July

...continued from previous page

Project lead Geoff Parker said providing a safe work environment for Smith and others is an important consideration for the Hebron project partners.

He confirmed for The Telegram a trio of near-miss incidents at a worksite in Marystown led to a day shutdown for a safety in-service.

“We’ve done similar things out here at Bull Arm. We’ve had several times where we’ve just said, ‘Let’s stop, take time out.’ And I think it’s good because it demonstrates our commitment to safety,” Parker said.

“Safety really is our No. 1 value here on site.”

When The Telegram was last able to photograph the Hebron GBS work at Bull Arm — on Oct. 31, 2012 — about 400 people were employed on site. The number now stands at more than 1,700 and is expected to peak later this summer at about 2,000.

Public tours to the lookout at the Bull Arm Fabrication Site are being offered beginning July 2, starting from the information centre just off the Trans-Canada Highway.
