Homce, G. T. (n.d.). An Alarm to Warn of Overhead Power Line Contact by Mobile Equipment. Retrieved from

Suspended load or otherwise in direct contact with both the machine and ground immediately become a path for electric current, as illustrated in Fig. 1. In another, equipment operators are not aware of the line contact, or may perceive themselves to be in immediate danger and attempt to dismount the vehicle, simultaneously bridging the high voltage between the equipment and ground. Finally, nearby workers who may not realize a serious electrical hazard exists, try to help those involved in the incident, and in doing so contact energized equipment or victims. Analyses of line contact incidents in the mining industry however, suggest that many of the resulting injuries could have been prevented by a device that simply alerts operators and other workers that a line has been contacted. Researchers at the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health Pittsburgh Research Laboratory (NIOSH, PRL) are attempting to develop a reliable and practical alarm that will alert workers on or near high reaching mobile equipment when an overhead electric power line has been contacted.
