Power Lines
This checklist could save your life...
Estimate clearances from the lines to the
highest possible part of your vehicle or
equipment.
Follow your company's guidelines for safe
clearances.
Be careful when handling long pipes or
metal rods.
Use ladders with nonconductive rails.
If you need extra protection, contact the
power company or facility owner, who
will install barriers or disconnect the
line.
Make sure workers standing on the
ground do not touch vehicles or
equipment.
If a vehicle or other equipment is
earthed, make sure workers stay several
feet away from the earthing location.
If a live wire falls...
Stay away from it and call for help.
If the wire hits your vehicle, stay inside.
If the vehicle catches fire, jump out,
being careful not to touch the vehicle and
the ground at the same time.
