Staying safe around transmission lines

Electricity kills if not treated with respect. Contact with powerlines is lethal - even close proximity to transmission lines can kill. Always look up before you lift any object and never load your vehicle or secure a load while your vehicle is standing beneath transmission lines. It’s a dangerous practice that could have tragic consequences.

Never attempt to climb any transmission line tower - you may be electrocuted or fall or you could be prosecuted. It is also an offence to discharge a firearm or throw an object at an electrical installation or tower.
