The Foreman 1 position is the in the field working foreman for BPA. I directly led a crew of linemen, equipment operators and apprentices in the daily work tasks as assigned by the Foreman 3. I was responsible for picking up work clearances and hold orders from dispatch, putting together a work plan and ensured that safety was the most important aspect of every project! I led the job briefings daily and communicated with all applicable work groups inside of BPA to get the work completed. In the absence of the Foreman 3 I would be upgraded to fill that role as needed to keep all current workflows on track.
As a journeyman lineman at BPA I was responsible for completing any assigned task from a foreman or manager. Duties included maintaining and constructing the BPA power system, completing all necessary training and being available for system emergencies. I have worked all of BPA's line voltages from 69Kv to 500Kv. I climbed both wood poles and steel towers and worked in all geographic parts of the BPA territory. I have changed insulators, cross arms and poles while the line remained energized utilizing hot sticks, insulated manlifts and other crane type equipment. Right of way maintenance was also a large part of our workload and I am very competent in chain saw use. I have also driven dump truck and operated land clearing equipment to maintain roads or build landings for line work.
Became an apprentice Lineman at BPA after attending Boise State Universities Electrical Lineworker Program. As an apprentice I would take direction from the foremen and the journeymen linemen on the crew. I was responsible for many daily tasks around the shop and ensuring the trucks and equipment were clean and ready for use at all times. I kept a daily log of activities and hours as well as attended additional training at both the BPA training Center and the JATC Saturday School courses. I attended Camp Rilea all 3 years. I spent time with each different craft at BPA to gain an understanding of how the power system truly works. These groups included dispatchers, substation maintenance/construction, communication and system protection folks. I asked questions as needed to be sure I was gaining the knowledge necessary to successfully completing my apprenticeship. I spent a lot of time traveling to work with other BPA crews to learn different perspectives of how to complete the same tasks as other crews. As an apprentice I made multiple trips to Snohomish County PUD to gain an understanding of how a Distribution Power System works as well.
