Q: How does Mears ensure the safety of its overhead electric services?

A: When it comes to safety, Mears is unique in the infrastructure industry. We think differently about what it takes to keep people on and around our job sites safe, using something we call the Capacity Model. It starts with understanding that people are fallible and that mistakes will happen – the difference is in making sure that these mistakes don’t result in harm. Through the Capacity Model, we strive to build sufficient redundancy into our processes so that errors are both less likely to happen and less likely to cause injury, allowing us to absorb events that would otherwise stop work or negatively affect output. Through this additional redundancy, we make sure that not only does everyone on a job site get to go home safely, we all get to learn from events and collaboratively work to ensure they don’t happen again.
