Respect The Power - at work

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. Keep your workers and contractors informed about electrical safety.
