Working on Distribution Poles

5.0 1 Review SKU: TDWPT00CENDuration: 60 Minutes

The purpose of this course is to teach the basic principles involved in working safely on distribution. To illustrate these principles, participants are shown some resources available for planning distribution work. Participants then are shown an example of how to accomplish the following jobs: replacing secondary conductors, using a temporary crossarm, moving energized conductors, and installing dead-ends. At the conclusion of this course, participants should have a basic understanding of how to plan a job that requires climbing, how to work and maneuver near energized conductors, and how to install some types of material and equipment. They should also have a basic understanding of how to approach the jobs that have been demonstrated in this course.

Learning Objectives

  • Planning a Distribution Job
  • Describe general considerations associated with planning a distribution job.
  • Replacing Secondary Conductors, Part 1
  • Describe types of conductor arrangements commonly used in secondary construction.
  • Describing how open wire secondary conductors can be replaced with triplex secondary wire.
  • Replacing Secondary Conductors, Part 2
  • Explain how to identify the conductors of two services to be paralleled.
  • Describe how a new service can be paralleled using a jumper.
  • Describe how a new service can be paralleled without using a jumper.
  • Describe how an old open wire secondary can be isolated and removed.
  • Using a Temporary Crossarm
  • Explain what an auxiliary crossarm is and describe how an auxiliary crossarm can be used to support conductors while a broken crossarm is being replaced.
  • Describe how a crossarm can be changed out by linemen working from the pole.
  • Moving Energized Conductors
  • Describe a typical insulated platform.
  • Describe how linemen can work from an insulated platform to move energized conductors.
  • Installing Floating Dead-Ends
  • Explain what a floating dead-end is and what it is used for.
  • Describe how linemen can work from an insulated platform to install a set of floating dead-ends.
