LJB’s experience providing fall protection services for federal agencies has helped us land a role on another contract for the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC). Our responsibility is to complete fall hazard risk assessments for a total of 225 buildings—75 at each of three naval bases in California— Naval Base Coronado, Naval Base San Diego and Naval Base Point Loma.
As part of the nearly $1M project, LJB’s fall protection team will perform site visits and evaluations for each facility and outline recommended solutions based on risk, cost, safety and ease of use.
For the contract, LJB is working with Reid Middleton—an engineering, planning and surveying firm headquartered in Everett, Washington. Reid Middleton holds an existing indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract with NAVFAC Southwest, and LJB’s fall protection work will be completed through this contract.
“We applaud the U.S. Navy for taking a proactive view of its fall risk,” said Craig Galecka, LJB principal and project manager. “The information we provide through these assessments will help the Navy immediately improve safety for its personnel, as well as to plan and budget for future risk reduction.”
