Procedures for extrication from cable entanglement should be put in place prior to committing personnel to an environment where cables may present a hazard.
If personnel become entangled in cables and are unable to move, they should remain still and be cut free. Electrical cables should be isolated if possible. Once isolated, or if the cables are not electrical, cable cutters may be used.
Personnel should consider attempting self-release techniques, especially if electrical cables cannot be isolated. One method is to find an area close to a wall where cables are still attached, and move slowly while attempting to release the cables.
