Field Manual for Powerline Workers provides linemen with instant access to information needed to complete daily tasks and respond effectively to emergency service calls. More than a directory of rules and regulations, the author outlines safety precautions and offers procedural guidelines to minimize the risk of field injuries. Among the topics covered in detail are: high- and low-voltage troubleshooting procedures, stringing procedures, rigging procedures, truck operation, and boom operation. Specific guidelines for live line work - placing grounding; controlling ground and air traffic; climbing, trenching, and blasting; contending with lightning and pole fires; and working alone - are also addressed thoroughly.
