J. Paul Guyer, P.E., R.A., Fellow ASCE, Fellow AEI
This course includes specific requirements for poles and structures, pole-mounted equipment, and aerial lines. Requirements addressed include pole handling and erection, climbing and working on poles, stringing of lines, working around pole-mounted lighting and other equipment, tool handling, and tree and brush trimming adjacent to an aerial line right-of-way. Additional safety requirements are needed for aerial line work since climbing poles is often necessary. Not all work can be accomplished from aerial lifts. Electrical workers must both recognize electrical hazards, and be trained how to prevent falls. This includes training in safe climbing procedures when the structure design cannot accommodate optimum fall protection load requirements.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
