Don’t look down: Engineers go to great heights to fix infrastructure, airfield

Airman 1st Class Brandon Ramirez is a 455th Expeditionary Civil Engineer Squadron power production apprentice, deployed out of Aviano Air Base, Italy. As a power production Airman, Ramirez works on systems that may require him to go up great heights, necessitating multiple safety measures to minimize the risk of injury. While falls are the leading cause of injuries in the U.S. Air Force, proper education, risk management and proactive supervision have been major in lowering these types of injuries.
