Had a near miss Monday. R-O-W crew trimming lines,6 ft. limb hung up on bucket. It was on phase. Groundman alerted trimmer. He reached to get limb and touched metal pistol grip. Received slight shock but was unexpected and really scared him. Figure that it was just the potential difference. Had bucket retested, Was just checked in April. It checked out fine. He learned to always have his gloves on while in close proximity to energized lines. Won't have to tell him again.
