ALIVE WITH FIVE

The Alive With Five safety rules are in place to prevent serious electrical incidents. Compliance with the Alive With Five is mandatory and carries the most severe penalties of all the safety rules at Pike Electric. 

KNOW YOUR VOLTAGE, PLAN YOUR WORK

Before performing work on energized lines: Distinguish the exposed live parts from other parts of electrical equipment Determine the nominal voltage of exposed live parts Determine the minimum approach distances corresponding to the voltages to be worked Determine the personal and line protective equipment needed as well as insulated tools to be used for working on exposed or energized parts  

WEAR RUBBER GLOVES AND SLEEVES

Approved Rubber Gloves Will Be Worn When: Ground to ground when working on any structures with energized conductors or equipment Lock to Lock (From time UG equipment is unlocked until it is relocked) in underground work On storm restoration work when handling conductors (even if the line is flagged, tagged, and grounded) Within 6 feet of any energized conductors or equipment When involved in such tasks as installing or removing guys, pulling wire, and setting poles when any part of the work is in close proximity to energized conductors Approved Rubber Sleeves Will Be Worn When: Employees are within reaching distance, located above, or moving past equipment energized over 600 volts Employees climb above any secondary conductor or the common neutral (This same rule applies to work performed from buckets) The common neutral is on the same level or above the primary  

COVER UP

Approved protective cover (line hoses, blankets, hoods) will be applied to all energized and grounded hardware/conductors, except the part to be worked on, that are within extended reach of the body or that could become accidentally energized during the work.

FLAG, TAG AND GROUND

All de-energized lines will be properly tested, flagged, tagged, and grounded before beginning work unless working as energized with approved personal protective equipment.  

SECURE JUMPERS

Jumper ends will not be located inside buckets when the other end is attached to or near energized equipment, neutrals, or grounds. Lineman will remain in control of jumper ends at all times Jumpers shall be handled properly at all time Lineman shall use echo protocol when installing or removing jumpers
