Working near power lines? Well, the power company will put insulation sleeves on their lines at no charge (at least here). Attached are two photos taken from my office window. LG&E showed up, insulated the lines, and the repair project for the building continued. Even a home owner can get the power company to sleeve their lines. Touch a power line with your aluminium ladder and you are DEAD. They do this for free. Just call them.

The insulator plays a vital role in electrical system. Electrical Insulator must be used in electrical system to prevent unwanted flow of current to the earth from its supporting points.
Power lines, for the most part, have no insulation on them, thus the need to sleeve them if workers will be within 10 feet of them.

Here is the accordian work platform right next to the power line. That's why the sleeving is necessary.
