Electrical safety tips for workers at workplace by Elion Technologies

If you are working on or near power lines, the following steps may save your life:

  • Never handle a downed power line.
  • Assume all power lines are energized and call the power provider to de-energize the line.
  • Ground power lines on load- and supply-sides of the work area. Grounding protects from feedback electrical energy when a secondary power source, such as a portable generator, is turned on.
