  • Use safety belts while working on poles / platforms above 3 m height and learn the

- proper way of using and removing the belt; and

- proper way to get up or get down the pole and also the way to change direction.

  • Always use insulated pliers and screw drivers (and only on LT).
  • Treat all electrical apparatus and conductors always as live and as a result dangerous to human life unless it is positively called to be dead and properly earthed and take precautions accordingly.
  • Keep safe distance from rotating equipment. Do not attempt to handle them while working.
  • Although working on live conductors, do not roll-up sleeves as dry cloth gives some protection against shocks.
  • While more than one Low Tension (LT) circuit is laid from a transformer, ensure that street light circuits are also separate. It is better to take line clear on both Current Transformer (CT) circuits.

  • Avoid joking although working.
  • Mind your personal safety and do not depend on others.
