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

Airmen from the 455th Expeditionary Civil Engineer Squadron pose for a photo at Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan, May 12, 2017. Civil Engineers work on systems that require them to go up to great heights, requiring multiple safety measures to minimize the risk of injury. Other than personal protective equipment like gloves and hard hats, engineers must wear a harness in case they fall. 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.
