Job Description for Electrical Lineman

An electrical lineman works with electrical systems and equipment, including electrical lines, utility poles, and underground systems. They work with electrical distribution systems whenever maintenance needs to be carried out. The lineman must be able to work with electrical lines that are either energized or de-energized, as well as understand how to properly ground electrical lines and be able to use phasing sticks. Systems are often high voltage, so the electrical lineman must follow all safety requirements and protocols. Electrical linemen are also responsible for stringing new wires and setting up the poles along with the anchors. When circuits and fuses malfunction, the lineman needs to be able to fix them or replace them; when electrical systems malfunctions, the lineman must find the source of the problem and work toward an effective solution.
