How about a metallic fibre body stocking? You'd be safe from EM up to some very high frequency depending on the weave (Say 200 Ghz)!

1.) Use metal-soled shoes, or go barefoot, 2.) Do NOT get a job as an electrician :)

Actually, workers on high-tension lines somewhere (UK?) tested full-body metallic suits, that allowed them to work on 300 KV lines with the power on! They were dropped onto the work area by helicopter!

I don't know what would happen if one of these people

grabbed an earthed strut at the same time as they handled a cable at EHT; I would imagine that suit would get rather hot with resistive heating!
