   That reminds me - the electrical utility in Edmonton, Alberta used
   to have instructional films for public exhibits and kids in school
   about how dangerous electricity is.  I would imagine they have
   similar films / videos for training their linemen.  Maybe your
   local power authority down there in Richmond might be willing to
   help with videos or information sheets on transformer and capacitor
   safety ??  How about the local technical college or university
   electrical engineering dept. ?  They might have a safety sheet for
   each device.
