Equipotential Grounding Made Practical (C4C)
COURSE DURATION: 1 HOUR | CUSP CREDIT: 1 POINT
Distribution linemen typically work on de-energized lines hundreds of times in their career. Is installation of a ground chain enough protection or not? This program will explore that question as well as present different options on how to install and arrange protective grounds and bonding mechanisms in such a way as to prevent workers from getting hurt should the line become energized. The session will conclude using a common sense approach to transfer these principles to the daily job.
