Keep on paying attention at the tailgate meetings, on the line, and when you’re prepping and storing gear. Any injury is unacceptable. And remember, you are your brothers’ keeper.
We asked Marty, one of our resident experts and a former power lineman, what he thought was the most important thing to remember when working on the line during winter storms. Take notes from this veteran lineman and you’re likely to stay alive and prevent accidents from happening around you.
M.W. Bevins founded this company in 1957, sometime after he had invented the Original Phasing Set – to provide a safer way for linemen to test for live voltage. Today, Rich Bevins – the grandson of MW – carries on the tradition of saving the lives of these brave men and women by continuing to create new instruments, tools and technology to be used in the electrical power industry.
The CHANCE® Auto-Ranging Voltage Indicator, or ARVI, is the smart, next-generation, electric field intensity meter used as a diagnostic tool by qualified linemen to detect the presence or absence of voltage.
The ARVI confirms whether a high-voltage line is energized or de-energized before any maintenance is done. It’s designed to determine approximate phase-to-phase voltage classes up to 500kV.
