When working in the fields, be alert to the dangers of overhead power lines. Farm equipment is getting larger and the increased height could lead to more contacts with power lines. Knowing what to do if your equipment contacts a power line can mean the difference between life and death.
When planning for a new grain bin or working near existing grain bins, be aware of electrical safety code requirements. Keeping power line right-of-ways clear is critical for your safety and the safety of others. Never place hunting stands or other obstruction in a power line right-of-way.
While enjoying the outdoors this summer, remember the dangers associated with electrical substations and pad-mounted transformers.
