||Laying optical fibre cables - Occupational risks
||Instalación de cables de fibra óptica - Riesgos laborales [in Spanish]|
||Jan.-Mar. 2000, No.151, p.18-25. Illus.
||The risks inherent to the various tasks involving optical fibre cables are described, as well as the corresponding safety measures: laying of cables in underground tunnels; handling and preparation of cables; testing of installations. While working in cable tunnels, it is important to be able to detect toxic or explosive gases and to use appropriate signalling of the work site. The handling and assembly of cables requires the wearing of insulating gloves, protective masks and safety spectacles. When carrying out measurements on the installations, one must take care to avoid having one's eyes in the optical path of the fibres.
