Access to the Transformer Pole

Our linemen climb utility poles at all hours of the day, often in harsh weather conditions. Having safe and unobstructed access to a transformer pole is necessary for maintenance and emergency service work. Sharp objects like nails, tacks or staples for attaching signs, birdhouses or satellite dishes also pose a danger to our linemen. If a sharp object punctures a lineman’s glove or damages other safety equipment, our lineman’s lives are put in danger. The safety of the Member is also put at risk when placing these items on poles.
