To minimise the risk of electrocution, check out these simple but vital safety guidelines:
You may not realise it but tree owners are legally required to ensure their tree(s) do not grow too close to electricity network lines.
Watch out for overhead lines around boat ramps, mast-heads or when towing your boat on land.
If putting lights outside, check they are safe to use externally and are in good condition.
Treat all power lines as live at all times and keep everyone, especially children, well clear of the area.
When around electrical equipment treat all wiring and sockets as live at all times, for your own safety.
Everyone working near overhead lines has a legal requirement to maintain the minimum safe distance from power lines.
Protect your sensitive equipment from surges and spikes with a power filter or surge protector.
