Sounds as though he really needs to get some class 2 gloves and a extendo hot stick to pull the cutout on the pole to suit some of you guys.
No but my job is service contractor. I get all the ones that are so hairy the local guys don’t want to touch it. And hey how come you know I carry class 2 gloves and hot sticks on the van?Sounds as though he really needs to get some class 2 gloves and a extendo hot stick to pull the cutout on the pole to suit some of you guys.

Seriously I’ve had some very ugly situations even at 480 or 4160, never mind 35 kV. I wouldn’t have thought despite the lab testing that 240/120 panels are anything but a shock hazard, and barely one, until I found the actual case, though rare, if someone dying. Granted I don’t even own flip flops.
Real (serious) arc flash is rare. Like one in a million per year rare. Every single case that OSHA has documented is human caused although in one case the victim and cause were different people.
Gloves are every 6 months or if damaged.
Hard Hats have an expiration date, check under the brim.Gloves are every 6 months or if damaged.
The hard hat is replaced when the reflectivity has been reduced or if the lid is damaged. My brain bucket is about 12 years old.
Will look for that date on Monday.Hard Hats have an expiration date, check under the brim.
We each own a minimum of two pairs and do regular swaps every 6 months. If damaged TRASH.

But I believe that the stamped date is the manufacture date. MSA says every 5 years, but that can vary. We don’t swap them here.
We have an “R” (as required) check for each time the gloves are used per 24-hour period.
I bought mine straight off of Amazon a few years back. I don’t have a shop to go through.Ordered that set a year ago. Still waiting
Yup, that's the stamped manufacturing date.Hard hats should be replaced every 3-5 years. Find out how to read the expiration date, determine when your hat was manufactured, where the date stamp is located, and more.www.customhardhats.com
The last place I worked supplied you with a hard cap with their company logo on it, but refused to buy hard hats (full brim) because of expense. The extra money spent on the printing was more than the hat was extra. I wore my own hat and while they didn’t like it, knew that they could have to supply one if it got ugly.We are not allowed to purchase and use our own PPE beyond boots. We have to trust that management will provide us with what we need.
Supposed to be six months on rubber goods and hot sticks. I’ve seen a lot longer.
