What are insulated shovels?

For operations near live wires and underground utilities, insulated shovels are specialised digging tools with protective insulation to protect against electrical shocks.

What’s the difference between a regular shovel and an insulated shovel?

Insulated shovels, in contrast to regular shovels, have a specialist layer of insulation on the handle and the shaft, providing extra protection when working around electrical components by not allowing electrical current to pass through to the user.
