As telecommunication workers, you are near energized electrical parts. You can be working on the installation, operation, maintenance, or removal of equipment, or you can be trimming trees and involved line clearance. You must understand the electrical hazards you are exposed to, and you must know how to avoid them. Telecommunication workers need to know and understand how to handle storage batteries, how to properly handle and store battery acid, what to do in an emergency, and what to wear for PPE. This training session presents these subjects as well as information on the equipment and tools used, general safety precautions, and confined spaces (for the underground lines).
