As of November 2010, the regional projects for the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission’s Water System Improvement Program (WSIP) achieved over 1 million safe working hours without major injuries since April 2009. The Alameda Siphon No. 4 project was one of the projects recognized as part of this achievement.
This significant milestone required a total commitment to safety by all participants including contractors, subcontractors, construction managers, consultants and SFPUC staff. The SFPUC salutes Steve P. Rados for active engagement, support and participation in the WSIP Safety Approach.
Recently, the project team presented representatives from Steve P. Rados with a certificate to recognize one million safe working hours.
