These "Rules" apply to the AC and DC catenary networks, junction station arrangements, transformer substations, and the automatic blocking system. They also are concerned with aerial lines of all tensions, 6-10 kV. aerial traction lines for electrical energy supply of the automatic blocking system, and centralized dispatching with cable lines suspended on separately standing bearings. The "Rules" themselves cover areas of application, personnel requirements, training of range personnel in safe operating methods, verification of such knowledge, general require- ments for work preparation and accomplishment commutation, protection and assembly, technical organizational measures insuring operating safety. The work execution itself is carried out at a height; under full or withdrawn tension; on aerial outlet lines; with protective and operational grounding; reverse current wave guides and conductors; with measuring beams used during defection of catenary insulators; with isolated beams; on horn discharges without tension removal. Cables are installed in the central anchoring posts and elastic cross braces are used; work may be carried out by ascending rolling stock to roof in order to inspect current collectors. Work may also be done on isolated cantilevers; on section disconnecting switches without tension removal; on removable insulated towers, on insulated platforms; on installation trolleys and rail cars; and on insulated lean-to ladders. Work on the automatic blocking system traction lines incorporates switching; aerial lines; portable transformers; safety measures regarding elevating machines and hoisting devices; clearing course of trees; digging trenches; and mounting supports are all covered in this section. The appendices provide the everyday sanitation maintenance indications: first aid to victims of electric shock and other accidents; electrotechnical personnel crews; commands and information regarding commutation of disconnecting switches and contact breakers; norms and test periods of current mechanisms and apparatus, work fulfillment by verbal or telephone disposition and radio; work execution disposition; and finally, order, information, and declaration forms.
