Currently working on a project regarding work with electrical meters at heights
I'm investigating solutions for reading and working on electric meters in local businesses and homes where the meters are too physically high to be read by the utility engineers
If possible I would like detail on:
Electrical safety regulations at heights
The number of competent engineers who should be present when work is going on at height (can it be done alone?)
What are the ranges of heights for which a stepladder is a viable option and what would be a viable range for a leaning ladder?
Would there be any health and safety precautions to consider if using an extensible pole to reach up and read meters?
Any idea regarding possible solutions or solutions you know of that are being trialed by utilities

For example, a selfie stick could work for single rate meters just out of reach but isn't suitable for telemeters (Economy 7 etc)

Thank you in advance for any detail or graphics you could provide that I could include in my project to present at a local university where I may be applying next year.
