  • Implemented a lead-based paint abatement program was to address all locations where thermal cutting was to be utilized for segmentation.
  • Developed multiple critical lift plans for the removal of large vessels. The close proximity to overhead power lines, plant personnel, and operating systems required the use of specialized rigging and engineering controls.
  • Utilized special protective measures and demolition techniques in the safe dismantlement of these structures due to the close proximity to a main thoroughfare inside the plant.
  • Established worker stay times to accommodate for hazardous conditions (excessive heat and humidity). A workforce utilization plan was developed to insure the safety of all DEMCO team members.
