Broken Pole

In Oct. we lost an Lineman Apprentice with M & J Electric. The details are not all in, basically the Apprentice was on a poll that was having it's conductors changed out onto another poll that a second Apprentice was on. The Journeyman was in the bucket. As they removed all but that last conductor, it had enough tension to pull the poll over with the Apprentice on it, crushing him. The Apprentice was 43, married and had children. ((((((((((((((((((((((((THINK SAFETY))))))))))))))))))))
