In late 1999 and early 2000, (for about 5 months) I was asked to cover all crews, (south of 6th Ave), on safety proficiency. This required each technician to demonstrate proficiency in testing their rubber gloves and voltage tester, test poles for safe conditions, how to properly test their hooks and climbing belts, inspect ladders and demonstrate how to properly and safely use these items which included the use of the ladder safety straps. For the underground technicians, they were required to do the above in addition to demonstrating proper use of aerial bucket and safety harnesses, along with demonstrating proper inspection of utility holes prior to entering. Following this they were required to demonstrate proper traffic control, how to test for gases and explosives and how to pump and purge the utility hole prior to entering.
