Part 40 Utility Workers – Electrical

Explanation of Rules Referenced from the ECUC, Second Edition

Rule 4-070 Repeating messages

Verbal messages are often exchanged during work on electrical equipment and lines, and to request or grant authorizations. To prevent mistakes resulting from misunderstood messages, this rule requires that verbal messages be repeated so that the sender and receiver understand one another correctly. The use of full names is required to eliminate the chance of an error happening should multiple workers involved in the work have the same first name.
