Lineman Safety is the focus of OSHA's effort to reduce the incidence of falls and electrocution by utility power line technicians. New OSHA regulations, which replace rules dating back to the 1970s, have replaced guidelines that were both out-of-date and inconsistent. OSHA estimates the new rules will prevent an additional 118 power line technicians injuries and 20 fatalities each year. Power line technicians who operate or maintain transmission and/or distribution power lines are affected by the new regulations. Also affected are construction workers who erect new power lines or equipment, as well as those who alternate, convert, or improve existing power lines and equipment. Our Lineman Safety channel talks about the latest technologies that can be implemented today to make power line technicians safe, effective and efficient in their work practices.
