Deploying tools with names like, “Uncertainty Gauge,” “Press Pause,” “Peer Checks” and “After-Action Reviews (AARs)”, Lewis crews, field leaders and safety personnel work together to identify hidden risks and potential surprises and provide input to refine and improve processes and methods. They’re empowered to call in others, including peers, field leaders and utility partners, without retribution anytime their uncertainty exceeds their comfort level continuing the work at hand. Risk hides in the differences, so Lewis pairs travel crews with local leaders to help them navigate local conditions and customer specific needs. For example, if an out-of-town crew is bringing its convoy into an unfamiliar area, a local leader will meet them and guide them into the work location.
