The author reflects on health and safety procedures for field workers. He mentions that the utilities sector is particularly sensitive to the issue, since it operates with large numbers of field workers who frequently work alone and often in potentially hazardous environments. He points out that while health and safety procedures have always been vital, they have ultimately relied upon individuals in the field to recall and correctly implement them.
