6 Planning Considerations Weight Restrictions The combined weight of a climber and his or her equipment shall be no more than 150 kg (330 lbs). 6 /

7 Planning Considerations Wind Speed Limitations At an average wind speed (10 minute average) of less than 15 m/s (33 mph), there are no wind speed related restrictions on work at the Wind Turbine Generator (WTG) Special Restrictions: At an average wind speed (10 minute average) of 14 m/s to 19 m/s (33 44 mph) Climbing on lattice towers is prohibited Climbing WTG s equipped with internal ladders will be permitted, however, no work shall be performed outside of the nacelle or transfers into the hub. At an average wind speed (10 minute average) of 20 m/s (45 mph) or greater: Climbing any WTG s is prohibited At wind speeds at or greater than 25 m/s (60 mph), no personnel are permitted to be out on the wind site. This restriction does not apply to office, service, or shop areas. 7 /

8 Ambient Temperatures There are also restrictions regarding working on the WTG when the temperature is outside a certain range: At or below 12 degrees C (10 degrees F) and at or above 26 degrees C (80 degrees F), site EHS representatives and site leadership will evaluate the work scope and any appropriate strategies to mitigate the effects of temperature extremes Work and rest periods at certain temperature extremes are defined HS11 in the Emergency Response Plan Depending on wind speed, hub entries may be curtailed starting at 10 F. At 10 F and below hub entries are curtailed regardless of wind speed Where technical assistance is needed to evaluate conditions and strategies, the Regional EHS Manager will be consulted Any deviations from extreme weather limitations are not in a site s scope of authority and must be approved by Regional or Pole Operations and EHS manager 8 /

9 Lightning Limitations Level 1 Alert: Defined as confirmed lightning between 48 and 80 km (30-50 miles) from the WTG where work is being performed. Required action: all personnel are to be made aware of lightning in the area and should be prepared to stop work and seek shelter as the storm moves closer. Climbing all WTG s is prohibited Level 2 Alert: Defined as confirmed lightning less than 48 km (30 miles) from the WTG where work is being performed. Required action: all personnel are to stop work immediately and seek shelter off the wind farm until the storm passes. All clear is given when lightning is greater than 48 km (30 miles) out from the site for greater than 30 minutes. 9 /

10 Ice and Snow Limitations Climbing is permitted in 1.5 WTG s covered by ice or snow. However, no work shall be performed outside of the nacelle or transfer into the hub Vehicle Safety Do not park vehicles directly below towers being serviced, repaired, or erected. When considering safe distance from drop hazards, evaluate work being performed and equipment in use Vehicles are to be parked into the wind where possible Always park trucks and personnel vehicles away from congested heavy equipment areas 10 /

13 Pre-Climbing Considerations Qualified Person Requirements To climb the wind turbine generator (WTG), at least two qualified persons must be present. Qualifications consists of being Work at Height Qualified (GE tower Rescue Course) and First Aid/CPR qualified. 13 /

14 Pre-Climbing Considerations Tower Rescue/Escape System Placement For de-energized work (pad mount transformer isolated; no grid power)- the Tower Rescue/Escape System must be at the base of the tower or higher, and readily available For energized work- the Tower Rescue/Escape System must be at or above the level of where the work is being performed. For HOT WORK (welding, cutting)- the Tower Rescue/Escape System must be set up (rope should not be deployed from the bag until needed) and ready for use and system should be set up for hub deployment.

If a third person is present, he or she must be on the hub. If there will be a hub entry and the hub is energized, there will be a minimum of two qualified persons uptower. If two individuals are simultaneously in the hub, there must be a third qualified person uptower and present in the nacelle; 16 /

17 DO NOT OPERATE REMARKS: DO NOT OPERATE Uptower Considerations LOTO Requirements All hub entries require that EACH entrant hang their personal LOTO lock and tag on the hub rotor lock (the use of tags only, is not permitted).
