International Lineman’s Rodeo Safety

The Lineman’s Rodeo attracts the best linemen from around the world to compete in events based on traditional lineman tasks and skills. The first Lineman’s Rodeo was held in September 1984, with twelve participating teams from Kansas and Missouri. The Rodeo has grown to over 200 teams and 300 apprentices.

Many of the skills required in the competition are less frequently used currently but still critical line skills like climbing, working off a pole, and task work using hot sticks rather than gloves. These opportunities for linemen enhance their skills and keep them fresh make them more productive all while keeping safety during the competition at the forefront.
