General Job-in-Progress Procedures
Observe the precautions given in Table 36 before proceeding with
the procedures given in Table 37.
Energized Work Precautions
C. Check that circuit automatic reclosing devices have been made inoperative while work
is being performed.
D. All items of a voltage class lower than required for the work should not be available to
the workers at the work site.
E. Exercise special care when working in the proximity of equipment such as fuses, surge
arresters, and similar equipment, or where conductor checks indicate burns or other
defects in conductors, tie wires, and insulators. Procedures may require that some
equipment be bypassed for the duration of the work.
F. Comply with adverse weather and number of qualified worker requirements.
Voltage Level Work Procedures
G. Voltage levels, 600 volts and below
H. Ground vehicles and aerial lifts in the vicinity of the work site.
I. Cover with approved protective equipment, or isolate with suitable barriers, energized
phase and neutral wires, ground wires, messengers, and guy wires in the vicinity of the
work. Apply covering to the nearest and lowest conductor first and remove in reverse
order. See Tables 24, 25 and 26.
J. See Table 31 for work methods. Rubber gloves with leather protectors will be worn
when entering a glove-required area and removed only after leaving that area.
K. Observe the working distance requirements of Table 11.
L. Protective equipment and vehicle grounds will be removed at the end of each workday.
M. Perform work on only one conductor at a time.
N. Tape or otherwise protect splices. Secure loose ends of conductors.
