Buckingham Manufacturing Rail System (Booth E1317)

After two years of development and patents pending, Buckingham Manufacturing has partnered with RHINO Utilities to introduce the RHINO Buck-It Rail System. Before the system was available, you’d have your basic setup involving bucket hooks and tool aprons, and you almost never had exactly what you needed. Now, the RHINO Buck-It Rail System lets you customize each tool board, rail and bucket to fit your specific needs. Its patent-pending attachment system allows users to quickly and easily change up how and where the tools are stored. The system also enables you to remain more organized in the bucket, maximizing productivity.

Not only can you utilize your storage while in the bucket, but you can do so in your truck bins as well. With over 10 boards and 20 accessories available, the RHINO Buck-It Rail System offers something for everyone. And, as always, we can develop new options for your tools or work practices.

Bullard CEN10 Safety Helmet

The CEN10 Safety Helmet from Bullard is the latest advancement in head protection from the company that invented the hard hat. The sleek, low-profile design of this safety helmet is offered in vented and non-vented models. This comfortable helmet features the world’s first and only auto-adjusting suspension, an integrated three-point chinstrap and a modern sporty look with a matte finish.

Jelco EZE-Trac (Booth E1252)

Even if your company ensures that all employees have the correct fall protection, how do you know each piece of equipment has been inspected, documented and is safe to use? Inspecting harnesses, SRLs and other fall protection equipment is critical to employee safety and OSHA compliance, but it can be time-consuming and easily ignored. Jelco has a solution. EZE-Trac is a complete safety software solution including RFID and QR code equipment tracking tags, job site inspections and employee training tracking. The software is app- and web-based, allowing you to use it anywhere. It offers the capability to conduct accurate safety inspections in a fraction of the time it would previously take with forms or spreadsheet systems. This allows you to automate and retain documentation and reports indefinitely. You can save and recall all inspections, from anywhere, in real time. This reduces double entry, missed inspections and having to keep track of paper forms.

NASCO Industries ArcLite Air

The ArcLite Air, designed to be the lightest-weight multihazard protective outerwear available, protects against both flash fires and electric arcs. It is great for gas and electric utility companies. The ArcLite Air meets the requirements of ASTM F1891 for arc flash protection, ASTM F2733 for flash fire protection and ANSI 107 for high-visibility.

This product uniquely addresses worker comfort by using a composite film with CCT Technology to make it 40% lighter than the lightest arc-rated product on the market. This eliminates PVCs, which store heat in the summer and make the wearer hot and uncomfortable. The ArcLite Air is in stock and ready to meet the demanding work environments of gas and electric utility companies.

PSS RoadQuake (Booths N1826 and E514)

RoadQuake is a highly engineered transverse portable rumble strip that is placed perpendicular to the direction of travel with the purpose of increasing driver awareness to oncoming changes in the road, such as work zones. As drivers’ vehicles travel over the PSS rumble strips, they will hear and feel the vibrations of RoadQuake. This sensation has been proven to redirect drivers’ attention back to the roadway as they travel safely through your work zone. Requiring no use of glue or fasteners to stay in place, deployment and retrieval of RoadQuake are quick and easy. Designed to reduce accidents and save lives, RoadQuake can significantly reduce the major causes of work zone intrusions, accidents and fatalities. Through our years of extensive testing and research, PSS has become the leading authority on portable rumble strips.

Safeguard Equipment COMPASS (Booth A1044)

In 2019, the Electrical Safety Foundation International reported 166 electrical fatalities and an additional 1,900 electrical injuries from workplace accidents in the U.S. That’s why we created COMPASS, the world’s most advanced voltage and current detector. COMPASS provides users with visual and audio alerts, 360-degree detection, and adjustable and smart-adaptive sensitivity settings. This PPE is specifically designed to protect utility workers, first responders, telecommunication workers, and construction, industrial and manufacturing workers who face exposure to energized equipment and/or hazardous environments.

Safety One Snowcat Operator Certification

The Safety One snowcat operator certification is a comprehensive program including two days of intense classroom instruction and two days of practical field safety training. It is focused on safety and survival techniques, specialized equipment training and snowcat repair under emergency conditions. Upon successful completion of the course, students will receive certification from Safety One and will have successfully demonstrated that they are able to operate snowcats safely, handle common emergency repairs on snow vehicles and remain safe in extreme weather conditions in remote areas.

Safety One’s certified snowcat operator training is delivered over four consecutive days and consists of 32 hours of material. Classes are limited to six students per instructor. This course offers detailed instruction on winter survival and environmental factors for workers exposed to harsh winter conditions in remote areas. It also teaches safety and survival skills related to cold injuries, hypothermia, emergency sheltering and fire-building techniques. Additional mechanical and technical instruction pertaining to vehicle operations will be covered.

Silver Needle Extraction System

All documentation is available upon request.

Tallman Equipment Co. Tri-Clamp (Booth B1554)

The Tri-Clamp is a patented, multi-plane clamp that securely cradles bolts in accordance with NEMA spacing, then clasps itself to the mounting pad of a connecting jumper line. The resulting bolt stability creates a process efficiency that cuts connecting times by as much as 65%. A starter socket holds a nut, lock washer and washer in alignment, enabling lineworkers to safely seat all three onto their corresponding bolt in one motion, thereby eliminating dropped washers and facilitating faster, more systematic connections. This tool reduces lineworker exposure and makes an otherwise hazardous task more practical and much safer.

YAK MAT Grounding Grates (Booth E533)

SAFESTEP EPZ Grounding Grates from YAK MAT are lab-tested industrial grounding grates that create an adequately bonded and grounded equipotential zone, protecting teams from hazardous step potential and Grade 5 fault currents.

The SAFESTEP EPZ Grounding Grate is a one-piece galvanized steel ground mat, positioned on the ground and then bonded together with 4/0 copper cables and two-hole lug connectors. The grates feature additional lug areas for securing grounding cables between stringing equipment and grates. This setup creates a safe equipotential zone for puller/tensioner sites and portable substations to ensure your crew is protected.

At YAK ACCESS, we believe that safety matters, which is why we’ve also created the SAFESTEP EPZ Solutions Package for complete insight on how you can protect your team with EPZ grounding grates. Get your copy of the SAFESTEP EPZ Solutions Package – which includes an EPZ Safety Checklist, EPZ Lab Testing Report and Worker Protection Video – on our website.
