BHI Energy and Duke Energy would like to express our thanks for your choice to help us in our upcoming outage. BHI Energy is extremely proud of the long standing relationship we have here at Harris. We take a lot of pride in the way our team members are a part of the day to day operations of the plant. We supply a full range of cleaning services for the site in addition to Radiation Protection Services, Decontamination Services, Tool Room and Material Handlers.


The plant is located in a relatively small town and the police force in the surrounding communities are very aware of the influx of people for the outage. Please obey the posted speed limits.


Personnel are expected to come to work with full-length pants and a shirt covering their shoulders with no offensive language or symbols. Some job classifications require ASTM approved safety shoes to be worn. Other than that you should dress appropriately using good judgment. Jeans are allowed with no holes.


Cell phones are allowed on site but cannot be used in the work place. After getting to work phones must be stored in the break room or locker and can only be used while on break.


  • Bring two forms of ID, at least one of which should be a picture ID, (i.e. social security card and valid driver’s license) Make sure the ID you bring is current and NOT EXPIRED.
  • Bring lifetime exposure records if you have them. (Form 4 or written estimate from last job will suffice)
  • Bring your BHI hard hat with you if you have one
