DUKE Safety Fair 2016
The DUKE Energy Safety fair August 24th – 25th 2016 was a great success for all. Over 300 DUKE Energy substation electricians, engineers, supervisors and managers attended. Substation and work process safety and equipment were reviewed, presented and discussed as part of this event.
Robert Cardenas of DILO Company Inc. and Billy Lao of DILO Direct had the opportunity to present SF6 gas safety and environmental awareness to a large group of attendees over the two-day event. DILO representatives and the DUKE Energy attendees discussed not only the importance of proper processes for SF6 gas handling and by-product awareness, but also the negative impact that mis-handling and gaps in processes regarding SF6 gas management and reporting may have on their organization as a whole and the environment. In addition, DILO representatives conducted one on one demonstrations of the various DILO devices that are displayed on “DILO 01,” the exclusive DILO Demo Truck.
DILO wishes to thank all the attendees and the organizers including Cooper Dwiggins and his colleagues for allowing DILO to be part of this important and impactful safety event. DILO looks forward to next year where we plan to review the new regulations and improved processes available for safe and environmentally friendly SF6 gas handling, management and reporting!
