This essential safety reference shows how to install grounds on de-energized lines so workers are protected if the lines accidentally become energized. It explains grounding concepts, and why equipotential grounding is usually safer than bracket grounding. It shows the special tools used for grounding, and explains how to choose, install, and maintain them. Illustrations and step-by-step instructions show how to install personal grounds on overhead lines, underground cables, and near vehicles. Includes the Minimum Acceptable Distance table and explains how to read it. An appendix has details on the large grounding mats used when replacing transmission conductors. More than 100 illustrations, many in color. Personal protective grounding is not well understood by some linemen.
