Excerpt from "Grounding precautions for arc welding from suspended scaffolds."
Two provisions - - 1926.451(f)(17)(i) and (ii) - - require that suspension cable, or any additional independent lines from the ground, be insulated. Cable lengths of 100 feet or more must be insulated at least 4 feet from the hoist. If there is a cable below the hoist, it also must be insulated. Insulating the cable reduces the hazard of electrocution by preventing arcing due to welding operations.
