Overhead Power Lines Toolbox Talk (UK) Mobile App
Overhead power lines are structures used in electric power transmission and distribution to transmit electrical energy along large distances.
How does it work?
Power lines consists from one to multiples of three conductors suspended by towers or poles. Although commonplace, caution should always be taken when near power lines. Overhead wires do not need to be touched to cause injury or death. Fires, explosions, electric shock, and burn injuries are caused by machines, ladders, or even water gets close to a wire then electricity will be conducted to earth. The Power Line Toolbox Talk (UK) app reminds us that one should always assume that power lines are "live" unless proven otherwise. Emergency procedures should always be in place.
