Safety Precautions When Operating Near High Voltage Cables

High voltage power cables are inherently dangerous in nature and not something anyone should take lightly when operating on or around them. The warning signs on your property with large wires and cables stock should be strictly enforced. So now let’s discuss what you, the business owner, must take into account when you or your staff must directly engage high voltage cables or equipment in their near vicinity.

Any high voltage power cable must adhere to established safety standards. For overhead power lines, it is recommended to research and enforce defined separation distances that non-trained personnel can approach. It is advisable not to allow any type of labor activity close to overhead power lines. Never allow unqualified staff or customers to enter an electrical power substation or other marked areas.

It is crucial to ensure that the high voltage power cable are manufactured with the highest quality line possible. Purchase and install the correct high voltage power cable that is durable enough to withstand the power demand and environmental challenges presented.

As previously stated, but worthy of emphasizing again, it is critically important that all employees should be trained and certified on the equipment that they are to work on. Conduct an initial Workplace Risk Assessment prior to starting work and periodically update and re-execute that plan.

High voltage work and safety consultation is what we do. For more information on the subject of high voltage cables, contact ElecComm.

Underground High Voltage Cable Repairs

Joseph Coupal - Friday, January 11, 2013

Underground electrical cables distribute electricity to homes, parking lot lighting, and commercial developments. Underground high voltage cables have problems less frequently  than overhead lines, but they do degrade over time and break.

Underground high voltage cables are subject to breaks or faults. When this happens ElecComm can locate the underground cable and the break and make the repair.

Underground electrical cables are more convenient and eye appealing, but when a problem occurs only the services of an expert underground cable specialist can help. If you are a landowner, developer or construction company who needs high voltage cable repair, contact ElecComm.
