Telecoms is a small group that can usually only muster a maximum of three persons for lineside work at any one time. Often the number is down to two and often the nature of the work requires the staff to be deployed at more than one point at the same time. Generally we work under "red zone" conditions. These rules have been written with these limitations in mind.
