In other words, those organizations large enough and with enough pull to have gotten themselves a free pass when those codes were written.Maybe, maybe not... using your example of utility workers, the training and safety equipment a lineman receives isn't anything like what your trade electrician will have, and certainly not what a residential weekender would use. Those same workers who can work in comfort around 69kV substations might not have a clue how to properly wire a three-way light switch without mulling over the instructions and diagram for an hour first. However, both a lineman and a trade electrician (are supposed to) know both their abilities and their limitations, and when to step back and say "Not gonna do it, it ain't safe." Your typical do-it-yourself handyman has a nasty tendency to overreach and get hurt, hence the licensing requirement.
