In 1995, CL&P Arborist and then CTPA Executive Secretary (and now Past President!) Alan Carey put together a very useful Booklet entitled “Plain Language Guide – OSHA 1910-269”. This very useful publication covers safety as it relates to line-clearance tree trimming operations in the vicinity of power lines. It is still used in Arboriculture 101 and other Electrical Hazard Awareness courses.
Alan has put together a presentation in power point that covers the essential points in that booklet. If you wish to view this presentation, just click on the following link:
