Look Up and Live
Powerlines can be dangerous, so we want you to be aware of what’s overhead wherever you’re working or playing.
If you use machinery such as tip trucks, high vehicles, excavators, cranes or augers, you need to look up before you commence work. Be aware that powerlines may be above you and pose a risk to you and others nearby. You even need to consider the height of larger vehicles when driving near powerlines.
Always take your time when you’re setting up to work near powerlines, and have someone monitoring the movement of your machinery near power lines. This is for your safety and the safety of others around you.
It’s not just at work that you need to take care. Some recreational activities can also be hazardous if you’re not aware that powerlines are above you. For example, you may want to raise a mast on a boat – if the mast makes contact with a powerline, it could be deadly. Children need to careful flying a kite or model planes near powerlines, and even climbing trees can be dangerous if a powerline is nearby.
Whatever you’re doing, you just need to take your time and look up first.
