Leveler Failure

Two lineman for New River Elect. on AEP job in Huntington,Wva. Bucket cables broke dumping
them out of bucket about 20 ft from ground. They had just unhooked safety straps to clean debree
from bottom of bucket one has broken leg and other has back problem. Cables in bucket had not
been changed or inspected for over 6 yrs. This is typical in this area because of non union compt.
Cheap labor junk equip and big on production, safety last, the main reason I left the area.
