SAFETY / STANDARDS Ratings: 100 percent of the fiberglass pole we produce is tested to meet the 100kV per foot testing standards. This allows completed tools made from this fiberglass to be used at the minimum clear insulation distances specified by OSHA as shown below. Our quality combined with industry standards for minimum clear insulation distances gives the users an additional safety factor. Footnote (1) NOTE: For 345-362 kv., 500-552 kv., and 700-765 kv., minimum clear hot stick distance may be reduced provided that such distances are not less than the shortest distance between the energized part and the grounded surface.
