PG&E Electric Safety Training Center
PG&E Livermore recently opened its new Electric Safety Training Center, the first de-energized substation training site in the U.S. Here, the focus is on safety training for electric substation operations and maintenance. The new training site, designed by RIM Architects, will provide a safe environment to train, validate, and assess substation employees in realistic simulated field conditions, complete with full-size training poles and mini-residential buildings. The centralized location provides seamless training from classroom laboratory to outdoor facilities. It accommodates an estimated 4,400 annual student training days for 775 crew leads/sub foreman, electricians, substation inspectors and utility workers.
