When faced with the opportunity to build a bridge in Nicaragua in 2017, without hesitation I knew it was for me. I love the thought of an adventure but even more important was the opportunity to help people that need it most.
Early 2019, Aldridge crews wrapped up a year-long project working on foundations for the new 500kV Corbett-Sugar-Quarry T-Line. This line runs 69 miles from the Corbett and Sugar substations in Palm Beach County to the Quarry substation in Miami-Dade County.
A team of 10 Aldridge employees will be traveling to Bolivia, located in Central South America, late this summer for our third year working with Bridges to Prosperity. This team will help build a footbridge that provides access to critical resources like healthcare, education, and employment and creates a long term positive impact on a local community. To get an idea of the size of the country, view the images below.
Being safe during winter is about preparation and good judgement. The holiday season is a time for family and friends to gather. It is a time for reflection and appreciation for everyone and everything in our lives, but it is also a challenging and busy time of the year. With so much to do and think about, it’s easy to forget about safety.
The safety of all team members, at work and at home, is a top priority for Aldridge. Many of our jobs require working in extreme conditions or potentially dangerous scenarios. Through our safety best-practices, we minimize the risk of exposure to potential hazards and equip our team with the training and resources they need to stay safe.
Industry stakeholders, including Aldridge CEO Steve Rivi, came together yesterday with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to renew the Electrical Transmission and Distribution Partnership agreement for an additional five years.
