Dielectric Testing in Alberta

Do you own a Digger Derrick or Aerial Bucket Truck in Alberta that has a fiberglass boom? Did you know that according to the CSA and ANSI code you are required to have Dielectric Testing done on that fiberglass boom section at least every 12 months.


Bucket trucks and digger derricks are often used for tasks involving electrical utilities, such as line maintenance, repair, and installation. Dielectric testing helps ensure that the insulation systems within these vehicles are effectively protecting workers from electrical hazards. By identifying any weaknesses or defects in the insulation, dielectric testing helps prevent electrical accidents and injuries. 


Dielectric testing serves as a proactive maintenance measure to identify potential issues before they escalate into costly equipment failures or accidents. By detecting insulation breakdowns or other faults early on, it allows for timely repairs or replacements, minimizing downtime and optimizing the lifespan of the equipment. 


Regular dielectric testing helps maintain the reliability and performance of bucket trucks and digger derricks. Ensuring that the electrical safety systems are functioning properly enhances operational efficiency and productivity, allowing workers to carry out their tasks safely and efficiently.
