Skids / Timbers
Pipeline construction is grueling, complicated, and dangerous work. These hardcore workers run huge pipelines across entire continents and don’t let anything get in their way. And because these pipes typically carry dangerous or harmful materials like oil, natural gas, or raw sewage, there’s absolutely no room to cut corners. So before a project even starts, all the pieces need to be in place. From the planning, to the people, to the equipment, everything needs to be perfectly staged and ready to go.
One detail that can’t be overlooked during the planning phase are your pipeline skids. While these wooden pieces might seem unimportant to an outside observer, they play a critical role in project success and worker safety.
Pipeline Skids are Critical to Worker Safety
What happens when you set a large piece of round pipe on the ground? There’s a good chance it will just roll away. And once that large piece of pipe starts rolling, there’s no easy way to make it stop. And because pipeline project typically move through all kinds of terrain, that unstoppable rolling piece of pipe could do a lot of damage to the environment, expensive construction equipment, and pose a real safety risk to your workers. This is where pipeline skids come into play.
Pipeline skids are cut pieces of hard or soft wood that keep component pipe pieces raised and in place above the ground. This allows workers to place, align, and connect the pieces together while they remain in a stable position. Without proper skidding, pipeline work is much more difficult and much more dangerous.
