Power Generation & Distribution
For the power generation and distribution sector we recommend the use of Dielectric boots wherever there is a risk of electric shock from high voltages. Without the correct PPE a high voltage electric current can stop the heart or produce fatal burns. For this reason, every single pair of Workmaster™ Dielectric Boots undergoes a high voltage test before it leaves the factory.
Dielectric boots are used for working on live power, or in the area of live power, as current can jump large distances - especially in wet or damp conditions. Even when high voltage equipment has been switched off, there may be a residual charge on the equipment which could cause an injury. They are suitable for live working on high voltage installations such as sub-stations, overhead line clearing, excavating or moling close to live cables, electric/hybrid vehicles and electric railways & transportation
