Today, the Calaveras Dam Replacement Project took a moment to celebrate another safety milestone. We have reached over 105,000 safety hours with zero recordable incidents for this quarter.
Our crews from the joint venture of Dragados USA, Flatiron and Sukut Construction have been working both day and night shifts in Sunol Valley. This safety record is very impressive with all the major work that has involved operating heavy machinery, prepping the foundation for the new dam, importing of materials to the site and placing materials to build the replacement dam. Along with a great safety record, we have also brought on over 280 new local hires to the project this quarter.
Since construction began in 2011, we have reached over 1.4 million total working hours on the job. Our project has not had any lost time recordable incidents since 2012. We strive to maintain our safety culture here at the Calaveras Dam Replacement Project as we continue the critical work ahead to construct the replacement dam.
