Respect the power

Respect the power at work

Powerlines can be lethal and unforgiving.

Touching them or straying into exclusion zones could severely hurt or kill you or your entire crew. The exclusion zone around most powerlines is three metres, which is the minimum safe distance for workers and any equipment they are using. High voltage powerlines between 132kV and 330kV have a minimum exclusion zone of six metres, and over 330kV is eight metres. The best way to stay electrically safe is to maintain the greatest possible distance from powerlines.

Respect the power at home

You don't have to make direct contact with a powerline for it to kill you.

Electricity can arc (or jump) from powerlines to you and your tools. The impact can be instant and lethal. To protect yourself, locate powerlines before you begin work, stay at least three metres away from them and always carry your ladder horizontally, never vertically.
