Is it cool to fly bucket between primaries and CATV? If so when and who?
Line clearance arborists and line clearance arborists trainees are allowed as long as you maintain mad without crouching in the bucket also including the reach of your hand or any non conductive tool
That was asplundhs company policy I see where that would be confusing. I think “crouching” breaks proper bucket operation practicesWhere does OSHA or the Z state that crouching is not allowed? Where is it stated that the reach of your hand and any non-conductive tool have to be included in the measurement?
My understanding is that both OSHA and the Z require that MAD be "maintained". Seems to me that we need to agree what the definition of "maintain" is. I take it to mean that as long as you don't cross the MAD boundary, you are in compliance. Others take it to mean that if you have the potential to cross the MAD boundary by outstretching your arm, or holding a non-conductive tool, then you are not in compliance.
Thank you for sharing any insight on this question - it is an issue I am working on right now.
