This course is designed to cover three major areas relating to safety in transmission line work: personal safety, electrical safety, and work site safety. Specific attention is directed to proper clothing and protective equipment; hazards associated with slipping, tripping and falling, and lifting and moving loads; electrical hazards and steps that can be taken to safeguard against them; and how personnel can work safely at the job site, both on the ground and while climbing transmission structures. The procedures and concepts presented assume a familiarity with basic electrical theory and transmission and distribution systems. Participants without this prior training may require additional explanation or instruction. At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to choose the proper clothing and protective equipment; and take the necessary steps to guard against slipping, tripping, and falling hazards and the hazards associated with lifting and moving loads. Participants should also be able to describe possible electrical hazards and steps that can be taken to safeguard against them. In addition, they should be able to describe the steps that can be taken to safeguard against hazards at the work site, both on the ground and while climbing transmission structures.
