Respect the power

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.
