Our staff has over 100 years of combined experience on NYSDOT bridge inspection projects, with a solid support group of Assistant Team Leaders and Office staff.
All of Prudent’s bridge inspection personnel are NYSDOT’s Training Requirement compliant. Field personnel have received extensive training and certification in safety, access equipment operation (UBIU, Bucket Truck, etc.), WZTC, fall protection, and confined space entry, and attended the NYSDOT’s Bridge Inspection Workshop. We make sure our bridge inspection staff meets the National Bridge Inspection Standards inspection refresher requirements.
