Avoding PowerLine Hazards
May 28, 2020 - May 29, 2020
How Do I Avoid PowerLine Hazards?
Look for overhead power lines and buried power line indicators. Post warning signs.
Contact utilities for buried power line locations.
Stay at least 10 feet away from overhead power lines.
Unless you know otherwise, assume that overhead lines are energized.
De-energize and ground lines when working near them. Other protective measures include guarding or insulating the lines.
Use non-conductive wood or fiberglass ladders when working near power lines.
