Wearing the proper safety equipment is a must while working on the Selmon Extension. Eye protection can often get overlooked. A small spec of concrete dust or metal shard can cause a huge amount of pain for the eye, even leading to serious damage. Proper safety equipment must be worn by all personnel inside the work zone. Personal protective equipment (PPE) including hard hats, steel-toed boots, reflective safety vest and, depending on the noise levels, hearing protection are all worn by the Selmon Extension construction crews.
