Barranca Safety and Awareness Briefing
Jim Morris, Responsible Party Incident Commander (RPIC), Witt/O’Brien’s
The purpose of this briefing was to give folks a sense of the safety hazards associated with work being done in the barranca. Security has reported people in the barranca, after hours and some youths were asked not to enter. The UC takes seriously safety concerns for high school students, especially now that classes are scheduled to begin next week The UC has reached out to the High School and has coordinated with the principal. Additional signage has been posted at the entrances to the barranca as well as other strategic locations. The UC has a tailgate briefing every morning to go over safety. The general safety message from the UC is for folks to be aware of slips, trips and falls; beware of equipment that might have been left behind and cobble piles.
Also the UC pointed out the fact that the barranca is under private ownership and response workers have ability to access and work within the area through permission of the landowner
