Access to Transformer Poles
In order to perform maintenance or emergency service work, our linemen require 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.
