Indeed, although I have, in my limited experience, never seen that done. Certainly when my meter was changed two or three weeks ago, the chap was on a metal stepladder with absolutely no PPE - although he was careful to disconnect the loads before he pulled the fuses.PPE required! ... Actually this posed photo is not correct. ...
Whatever the DNO in that area consider to be "qualified", as they are the ones who give authorisation.I know electrical contractors have certain engineers who are 'qualified' to remove the fuse, and re-seal. I am wondering what constitutes as qualified as i can't seem to find the information online.
As above. Different DNOs have different rules.I am wondering what constitutes as qualified as i can't seem to find the information online.
I would imagine that they are probably much more vigilant (in relation to PPE etc.) when they are actually going to disconnect a live conductor. It's when they have just been 'pulling fuses' (to facilitate downstream work) that I have personally never seen PPE used.Different DNOs have different procedures. Mine had full PPE, a cover for the live conductor while it was disconnected, and a colleague watching in case of accidents.
