Electrical equipment, such as power lines and hydro poles, is a common sight throughout the city. It is incredibly useful, but can also be dangerous.
In fact, this equipment is so familiar that most people don’t even notice it anymore.
However, electrical equipment, such as hydro poles and substations, can nonetheless be dangerous and it is important to take precautions when around it. It is also important to take note of best safety practices when there is the potential to come into contact with objects, such as trees, that are near power lines and when digging where there might be underground equipment.
Familiarize yourself with safe practice around electrical equipment and always take note of potential electrical hazards when working outside.
