The quick look-up, portable version of the classic The Lineman's and Cableman's Handbook. This graphically-oriented field manual is filled with checklists, tables, data, and safety information that will help readers sidestep costly errors, and diagnose and repair failures on site--quickly and accurately; this makes it an indispensable tool for line and cable workers on the job. All the important safety information from OSHA and other key standards can be found here, along with specially designed pages for taking down notes. Covers everything from electric calculations and electrical symbols, to overhead construction and maintenance, to pole-top and bucket rescue, to lightning protection.
