Jan. 17: Power Line Hazards Booklet Released


In an effort to eliminate electrical contact with overhead power lines and keep workers safe, the WHSCC has released a power line hazards booklet it developed with Newfoundland Power and Newfoundland Labrador Hydro. In 2010 alone, there were approximately 50 public contacts with power lines, most involving heavy construction equipment, such as boom trucks, excavators, backhoes and dump trucks.
