What information is required to research a transmission site?

Structure number, circuit number (CKT), coordinates and cross streets are the primary requirements.

​What is a CKT number?

​”CKT” stands for “circuit” and it identifies the transmission line that runs from one substation to the next.​

​What is the difference between a Safety Watchman and a Safety Escort and when are they required?

​A BGE Safety Watchman must be present in any of the following scenarios: work being performed on a transmission  R.O.W., an equipment delivery to a transmission R.O.W. requiring the need of a boom truck or heavy equipment; when a BGE approved vendor has been granted approval to climb a transmission  structure or a communications tower. A BGE Safety Escort is required to gain access to any secured BGE facility such as a substation or service center.  ​

​How do I arrange for a Safety Watchman?

​For sites currently under construction or in the planning stages, your Construction Specialist will schedule a Safety Watchman as required.  For more information, please print out the Safety Watchman Process from our Downloadable Process and Guideline Documents page.

​How do I arrange for a Safety Escort?
