Barehand Work Practices
Barehand Work Practices covers the principles and strict procedures for working directly on energized transmission lines without cumbersome sticks or rubber gloves. Lineworkers are safe because they're at the same potential as the conductor -- they're like birds on a wire. These lineworkers ride to work on a helicopter. The tricky part is transferring workers and tools on and off energized transmission lines, and that's what this book covers.
It delivers work practices with step-by-step instructions and computer-precise illustrations for various common tasks performed using the barehand method. It covers how to place lineworkers on and off energized conductors; change an insulator; install, repair, and splice conductors; install and replace vibration dampers; install and replace marker balls; and rescue an injured worker. Alexander Publications wrote this book in cooperation with BC Hydro, where barehand work has been the preferred method for working on energized transmission lines for more than 50 years.
