First Place – “The Shock”
Congratulations to Andrew Warner for this electrically-charged image connecting linemen to their work!
It was our first contest here at Bevins Co., and some of the images sent to us brought us to tears with laughter. But the images we chose show the depth of connection linemen have with their work. The intricacies of electrical work are both exciting and deadly, and these men risk so much to get the job done right – and keep the power flowing to the rest of us.
Why a Contest?
The truth is that the job of electrical linemen is the 4th most dangerous job in the world. And these brave men tackle it with courage each and every day – and night, and weekend, and holiday – so that we can enjoy freedom and comfort. And our job at Bevins Co. is to create innovative products that keep linemen safe and effective on the job. But nothing beats a picture of a linemen working hard and staying safe on the job!
We also initiated this contest because the work linemen do gives the opportunity for so many amazing shots. The pictures linemen take on the job can be terrifying, funny, awe-inspiring, and beautiful. They can inspire feelings of anger, thankfulness, fear and even love. Seriously, have you ever seen a picture of a new daddy in hooks holding his new baby? Here are a few more winning shots.
Second Place – “The Flex”
We couldn’t find a better picture defining linemen who Think Safety and Live Tough. Great pose, guys!
More Great Shots!
Andrew Warner wasn’t the only one to send in some inspiring images. The following images, sent in by line wives, show us how important a lineman’s family support really is. These women took the pictures and sent them in to us simply to recognize the hard work and dedication linemen give their fellow man each and every day.
So in honor of these men and their families, thank you. For all you do, every day.
