powerlines

The Queensland safety regulator is reminding us all to be careful when working near overhead powerlines.

The reminder comes after 2 people were killed and 7 seriously injured in incidents involving overhead powerlines.

These accidents were tragic and preventable, as Head of Queensland’s Electrical Safety Office, Victoria Thomson explains.

Most recently a 28 year old worker died after he received an electric shock while working with a pruning tool and coming into contact with powerlines.
