Please be sure to follow Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) regulations for the operation of cranes, booms and hoists, including power shovels, elevators and conveyors.
SHA regulations specify safe distances from power lines on the basis of voltage. IPL recommends you maintain at least the following minimum clearances. It is against OSHA regulations to operate a crane or hoist so that any part of the equipment or the load is closer to an electric line than OSHA regulations specify. In order to work closer to electric lines than OSHA regulations specify, you must contact IPL at (317) 261-8111 before proceeding. The line must be covered or de-energized and visibly grounded at the point of work.
For help in determining electrical line voltages, proper clearances and safety precautions, contact IPL at 317.261.8111. If possible, please call a few days in advance.
