XVIII. Safety

For reasons of safety, no Employee covered under the terms of this contract will be permitted to perform routine maintenance or equipment testing, remodeling or any other related work which requires that he/she be immediately exposed to dangerous electrical potentials or currents such as those that are to be found in the high powered broadcast transmitters or antenna systems unless in each case another Employee assigned by the Employer is present. The Employer agrees that all reasonable automatic safety devices shall be installed where necessary and that all applicable rules and regulations of the State Industrial Commission will be complied with. Nothing in the foregoing, however, shall preclude an Employee, exercising reasonable and prudent safety procedures, from attempting alone the restoration of transmission of signals in cases of transmitter equipment failure.
