Construction Safety

Be aware of the power lines where you live and work. Always assume power lines are live. This applies to power lines on utility poles as well as those entering your home or buildings. Even momentary contact can injure or kill. Always keep yourself, your equipment, and anything you carry at least 10 feet from power lines. If using a crane or derrick in construction, you may be required to maintain 20 feet of clearance or greater. Consult www.osha.gov for requirements. Even though you may notice a covering on a line, NEVER assume it is safe to touch. Stay Away. Stay Alive.
