A crew was trimming for an open secondary wire when a climber cut a limb that didn’t need to be cut. He had removed part of a lead and had dropped down to remove the stub but cut a different limb instead which slid down the secondary causing a fuse to blow.

Prevention:
Prior to making any cut, ensure that what you are cutting will not strike anything. “Rope It-Shorten It”.

Explanation:
What the prevention method is concerned with is marking the appropriate limb to make sure that no contact or accident will occur. By tying the limb to be removed/cut/shortened this will be possible.
By shortening the marking improper contact will also be a preventive measure.
Last but not least, the entire procedure is resumed in 2 words to make it easy to remember.
