Ensuring the safety of telecommunications workers is of the utmost importance in the industry. This includes protecting workers from the risk of electrocution, which can be a hazard when working near high-voltage wiring and equipment. To help prevent accidents, many telecommunications companies use personal voltage and current detectors (PVCDs) to alert workers to the presence of live lines.
Electrocution is a serious and potentially life-threatening hazard for telecommunications workers. While high-voltage cables are not typically part of their daily work, telecommunications line installers and repairers often work near utility poles, which can be equipped with high-voltage wiring and equipment. This means that even when lines are supposed to be de-energized, there is still a risk of electrocution if a worker accidentally comes into contact with live wires.
To help prevent these accidents, many telecommunications companies use personal voltage and current detectors (PVCDs), such as Safeguard COMPASS™ Pro, to alert workers to the presence of live lines. These devices are worn by the workers and can detect the presence of voltage or current in the area, allowing them to take appropriate precautions to avoid injury.
