Urgent Notice From NL Power

Posted by Chris Herridge on March 31, 2014 at 11:15 PM Comments comments (0)

Public Notice:

March 2014

All Municipalities:

At Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro (Hydro) and Newfoundland Power, one of our top priorities is to ensure the safety of employees, contractors and the public. We are working to continue raising awareness among those who work around power lines and reminding them to take precautions to ensure the safety of themselves and others.

It is important to understand that contact with power lines is extremely dangerous and can be fatal. We are asking for your help in promoting this safety message to all contractors and heavy equipment operators. It is critical they are aware of the dangers associated with electricity and to take the appropriate precautions when working around power lines. By taking the time to locate and ensure adequate clearances from overhead and underground power lines before beginning work, electrical contacts and a potential fatality can be prevented.

Working around electricity requires your complete attention. Accidents can be prevented with proper planning, worksite evaluation and keeping safe distances.

As a leader in your community, you can help us promote this important message.

You are encouraged to bring this matter to the attention of your municipal council, and ask them to deliver this message to their constituents. If power line contacts do not stop, it is only a matter of time before someone is seriously injured or killed.

For more information on working safely around electrical equipment, please visit HydroSafety.ca or Newfoundlandpower.com. You can also contact Paul Smith, Hydro’s Manager of Health, Safety and Environment at PWSmith@nlh.nl.ca or John Curran, Director of Health, Safety and Environment at Newfoundland Power at jcurran@newfoundlandpower.com.

Sincerely,

Darren Moore - General Manager
