An excerpt from ISNetworld® RAVS®* Safety plan Utilities Grounding & Deenergization Program

Working on or Around Exposed Powerlines

Proper clearances shall be maintained under and around energized exposed wiring. For wiring 300V and below, the clearance distance for unqualified workers is 3 ft. For overhead lines under 50,000 volts, the minimum clearance is 10ft. around the conductors, or 4ft. when driving under lines for unqualified workers. The lines shall be deenergized and grounded or other protective measures shall be provided before work is started if the worker has to be closer than the above clearance. Since Replace with Company Name does not perform work necessitating qualified electrical workers, it is the policy of Replace with Company Name that the clearances noted above applies to all Replace with Company Name workers.

Working with Energized Equipment

This section contains safety requirements that must be met in constructing electrical equipment and in working on energized electrical equipment. Special emphasis is placed on problems associated with personnel working on hazardous electrical equipment in an energized condition. Such work is permissible, but only after extensive effort to perform the necessary tasks with the equipment in a securely de-energized condition has proven unsuccessful, or if the equipment is so enclosed and protected that contact with hazardous voltages is essentially impossible. Also, special care shall be taken when working with conductive materials and equipment such as long dimensional conductor objects (ducts or pipes). Employees who handle may be working with such objects shall work with the RSO, Replace with Safety Person’s Name, to determine if any additional steps for safe work practices need to be taken.
