What requirements apply to qualified persons working near overhead lines?

When a qualified person is working near overhead lines, whether in an elevated position or on the ground, the person must not approach, or take any conductive object without an approved insulating handle, closer to exposed energized parts than shown in WAC 296-307-150 unless:
(1) The person is insulated from the energized part (gloves, with sleeves if necessary, rated for the voltage involved are considered to be insulation of the person from the energized part on which work is performed); or
(2) The energized part is insulated both from all other conductive objects at a different potential and from the person; or
(3) The person is insulated from all conductive objects at a potential different from that of the energized part.
