Lineman orking on Frozen Power LinesLinemen Love These Endura® Lineman Gloves

A lineman, also called a journeyman lineman, is a particular type of tradesman or an electrician that constructs and maintains electric power transmission used in telecommunications lines and distribution lines. They typically work on outdoor power lines or may work at power plants, focusing on lines and generators used for electricity distribution. Linemen may also be responsible for the installation and maintenance of telephone, cable, wires and fiber-optic lines.

The origin of linemen began with the birth of the telegraph in the 1840’s where telegraph lines were strung on trees. Eventually wooden poles were adopted and the term ‘lineman’ was used for those who set the wooden poles and strung the wire. The term lineman continued on with the invention of the telephone in the 1870’s and the beginnings of electrification in the 1890’s.

Utility work is essential for keeping electricity running into our homes, schools and businesses but working with high voltage equipment is highly dangerous. Linemen risk falls, cuts, electric shocks, burns and other injuries while on the job every day, and these incidents can even be fatal. So, what can utility workers do to minimize these risks?

Linemen workers need to ensure they’re competent, well trained, wearing the right industrial safety and protective electrical gear that includes electrical gloves fit for work, and focused on the job at hand. We know that working as a linesman is very demanding and dependent on your hands and we want to ensure that every time you’re required to climb up a telephone pole or install a transformer, you’re using the very best hand protection available on the market. 

The engineers over at Superior Glove® discovered that when it comes to linesman gloves, there’s one type of leather that beats out all the rest: horsehide. This leather is what gives their Endura® deluxe linesman gloves their immense softness, unmatched flexibility, and longevity. It’s also what protects their hands against even the harshest of abrasion threats. But Superior Glove’s lineman gloves are more than just another work glove.
