Safety Measures For Areas Where Electrical Wires Are Being Installed Or Repaired

If you are a crew leader who oversees the installation and repair of residential and commercial electrical lines, keeping yourself, your employees, and people who live in and frequent areas safe is one of your responsibilities and will make it possible for jobs to be handled in a professional and timely manner. The safety tips below can be of assistance and will prevent confusion or the accidental handling of live electrical wires.

Train Employees And Have Spotters On Hand During Working Hours

Before allowing employees to begin working on lines, make sure that each person has received plenty of training and is comfortable handling duties that are expected of them during working hours. Schedule employees so that they only work for a specific amount of hours each day so that they do not become weary and unfocused while working with live electrical lines.

Assign some of your crew members to be spotters and request that they stand nearby other workers and monitor their progress as they complete jobs. If a spotter notices that someone is in danger of falling or is installing or repairing an electrical wire improperly, have them report to you immediately so that you can assess the situation at hand and assist anyone who needs help. 

Inspect Transformer Boxes And Label Them Accordingly

Transformer boxes should be closed and labeled at all times. Since everyday citizens likely have no knowledge of how electricity works or how to handle transformer boxes, it is crucial that you warn people of the dangers associated with live wires.

Inspect transformer boxes in the jurisdiction that you are responsible for and affix caution labels on the outside and inside of boxes. Bright-colored labels that are designed to be secured to electrical components will alert people in the vicinity so that they are discouraged from touching the boxes or wires that are connected to them. 

Use Barricades And Signs When Servicing Areas

If power lines are down in a residential or commercial location and you and your crew members will be responsible for making repairs, barricading the area being serviced and posting signs along the perimeter of the area will prevent citizens from driving or walking through the area and possibly coming into contact with an electrical wire.

Before beginning each job, place cones or temporary fencing around the property that you will be working on. Redirect people in the area by instructing one or more of your workers to hold up signs that specify directions for a detour.
