Calvin Freeman, Lead Laborer for Mears Pipeline Integrity, was recently awarded the Quanta Commitment Coin for going above and beyond to stop progress on a project before a potentially dangerous situation occurred. While spotting for an Operator trenching in Zinc 10 feet away from a pipeline, Calvin noticed a change in the dirt being excavated. He stopped the excavation and investigated the change by hand, only to discover a mismarked gas transmission line. His actions prevented pipeline damage and a very serious incident from potentially occurring.
Calvin has been an employee of Mears since 2007 and has continuously demonstrated his commitment to safety and leading by example. Please join us in thanking Calvin for his continued commitment to Mears and our safety culture.
